Interesting what the NetJets marketing person told you, but the original intent of the QS was Quarter Shares...It's probably evolved into Quality Service though...
Copied and pasted from another forum.
NetJets founder, Richard Santulli - who has a mathematical background, used the equation 'Binomial Distribution' to determine the odds of more than one fractional owner requiring an aircraft at the same time as another fractional owner.
The mathematical answer is '4', thus it was named Quarter Shares - QS.
Of course now, NetJets (Richard is long gone) is now selling 1/32 fractional shares.
