Peter Cunzolo was one of the original founders of ExecuJet in the spring of 1994 with one plane, a business plan and his vision – to build a business that puts the customer first while providing the ultimate first-class flying experience. A few short years later, ExecuJet became wholly owned and operated by Mr. Cunzolo. Since that time, the company has grown substantially and continues to expand, while staying committed to continually providing world-class service on each of its flights – 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
Mr. Cunzolo’s knowledge is backed by more than 30 years of aviation experience. He is a professional pilot with an Airline Transport Pilot Certificate and several aircraft type ratings. And he has logged nearly 7,000 flight hours both domestically and internationally.
Mr. Cunzolo does not take the successes he has achieved for granted, choosing to give back both professionally and personally. He is a contributor to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, and the YMCA of the Suncoast, as well as numerous faith-based and youth-based organizations. Professionally, he is a member of the Tampa Bay Aviation Association (TBAA) and the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA.)
