The Publishing Pro, LLC, began when Kenneth Guentert, current president, and his wife Carole purchased a book production company named Graphics West in 2002. The original company focused mainly on providing editorial and production services to large textbook companies. The new owners were more interested in helping authors self-publish their books, which at the time was only a small portion of the business. Today it is the main focus of The Publishing Pro, LLC.

Kenneth Guentert has spent his entire career in journalism and publishing. Before coming to Colorado Springs, he spent eighteen years with an independent publisher, serving at various times as production manager, marketing director, and editor-in-chief.
