Paul Kountz

30 dedicated years in the catering industry has led Paul to inherit the reputation as the “Best Catering Manager in Baltimore”. Born and raised in Baltimore, MD, he immediately found a passion for hospitality management. Paul began his long career managing The Brass Elephant Restaurant and building its catering division. He quickly found that he enjoyed and excelled at managing this part of the restaurant and wanted to focus on his new found specialty. The next step in Paul’s career included an opportunity to become the Director for Catering at Wickey’s Caterers. His attention to detail and excellence at event planning and execution caught the eye of Chef’s Expressions President, and he quickly became Vice President in 2002. Paul played a pivotal role in Chef’s Expressions success and helped to bring various awards, like Wedding Wire’s Caterer of the Year 2010 and 2011, to the company. After 10 great years with Chef’s Expressions, Paul decided to venture out and was introduced to Daniel Horwitz, Chef and Owner of The Pantry Catering. Daniel and he decided that partnering up would be a great opportunity for the both of them. In the spring of 2016, Paul sold his interest in the Pantry and was hired as the General Manager of Putting on the Ritz Catering. In the fall of 2017, Paul found his long awaited home at Water’s Edge Event Center in Harford County. “I am excited to be part of this awesome team and I’m looking forward to the months and years ahead and the growth of WEEC that will soon follow at this beautiful, waterfront property”.
