Once Cuocolo made his mark in the NYC lime- light he sold his business in 1996.

Peter moved to Charlotte in December, 2004. Peter quickly accepted a position at the Hilton Charlotte University Place Hotel as National Sales Manager until October 2007. He accepted a similar position at the Omni Charlotte Hotel where he worked until February 2010. He decided it was time to venture out on his own again to establish his new destination management company, the Charlotte Special Events Group.

Cuocolo is well known in Charlotte, NC and through-out the states as being a creative and “make it happen” professional in the hospitality industry. There is nothing that can’t be done. Only your imagination can hold you back. This has been Cuocolo’s philosophy since 1987!
