FOUNDERS - Fabiola & Simon Hesslein

HOW IT STARTED

What began as two people pursing successful careers in the entertainment and music industry ultimately morphed into a conglomerate in business and marriage ----  labeled today as “Couple Power Entertainment Entrepreneurs” by the Huffington Post and Entrepreneur Magazine.  

It was in 2003 when Fabiola and Simon Hesslein formed Tryon Entertainment offering music production, artist development, casting, style consulting and choreography.  In 2008, it expands into a full service production company, launching all-inclusive shows and immersive theatrical experiences for special events.
