Shining light on extraordinary possibilites

About

Prior to starting Creative Energy Unlimited, Kevin Walters served as Vice President of Food and Beverage for The Breakers resort in Palm Beach, Florida.  During his 16 year tenure Walters transformed the restaurant, bar and banquet operation with innovative talent.  After taking over a 17 million dollar F+B division with several fairly traditional hotel dining outlets, with high energy, motivation and a contemporary customer focus, Walters set out to re-conceptualize the existing venues to create distinct and stronger identities that would have freestanding appeal to both resort clientele and local guests.  Today there are seven on site restaurants.  Building on their success, Walters was instrumental in the opening of several off site ventures: Echo in Palm Beach, Phillips Point Club/Top of the Point restaurant and Special Impressions, the off premise catering business which oversees the food service operations for the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts.  Today this division produces revenues in excess of 54 million dollars.

Walters compiled a dynamic food and beverage management team that would set new benchmarks in food quality, service standards, training and presentation while keeping pace with the organizations goals for expansion.  His creative vision helped shepherd the resort into a new era of casual yet stylish sophistication.  His aesthetic talents are evident in all decorative elements, from artwork and period pieces that adorn the restaurants, to the unique tabletops that intrigue patrons and make for conversation.

Prior to The Breakers, Walters served as Vice President of Restaurant Associates Caterers in New York City as well as Director of Catering for the Boca Raton Resort and Club in Boca Raton, Florida.

Walters is a graduate of the Senior Restaurant Executive Program at Cornell University and is also the recipient of two Best Practice Awards from Cornell University for restaurant concepts and employee moral/retention, respectively.

Creative Energy Unlimited stands as the integrating of knowledge, experience, creativity and vision combined with the appropriate resources to manifest success.
