Introducing our owners - The Tessler Family
Dennis- Chairman of the Board
Continuing in his family’s proud 3-generation tradition of opening successful family-operated businesses, Dennis purchased The Pros in 1991, at the time a small DJ business in Philadelphia. He had his “Eureka!” moment shortly afterwards and added Photography and Video services, making The Pros the first multi-service company in the industry. His main source of pride and happiness comes from raising his two sons, his love for his wife of over 40 years, beatnik poetry, gardening, horseback riding, and spending time with his four grandchildren. Family always comes first!
Keith- Co-President & COO
Keith joined his father in the wedding industry in the late 1990s, bringing with him his knack for IT to create our systems and head up our operations team. Whether it’s long-distance cycling, skiing, his bizarre love of station wagons, or buying the same kind of shoes for the past 20 years, Keith commits to whatever he does at 100%, perfecting and tweaking every aspect until it’s just right. When he’s not at the office, Keith most happily spends time with his “crunchy” lawyer wife, Little League-playing son Josh, hip-hop dancing daughter Becca, as well as their very aptly named Collie, Zen.
Brian- Co-President & CMO
The youngest of the Tessler brood, Brian came on board after business school full of fresh ideas and an innate sense of how to better market The Pros’ message to the nation’s brides and grooms. Always full of energy, Brian has a zeal for travelling the world, swimming, triathlons, camping, hiking, and pretty much anything that requires being outdoors. The very best part of his life though revolves around his wife and two adorable daughters, Little Mermaid-obsessed, gymnastics enthusiast Avery, and his youngest, the ever adventurous, sushi-loving 2 year old Peyton.
