RACINE — Richard Kessler, CEO of Kesslers Diamonds, spoke with Case High School business students on Nov. 16.
Kesslers Diamonds is in its fourth decade of business and Richard Kessler is one of the most recognized names and voices in the Midwest.
“I’m Richard Kessler and I want to be your jeweler,” Kessler said to the group of about 50 students.
“I set some outrageous goals for myself and started to believe that I could make them happen. I decided that I wanted to be ‘the most respected name in diamonds in southeastern Wisconsin.’ That was my vision. I didn’t know how I was going to do it, especially because I was then the smallest jeweler in southeastern Wisconsin. I wrote that phrase on the wall and thought about it every day,” Kessler told the group.
At the end of the presentation, students had the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about Kessler and his business.
