Tom Zukas (late addition, will be on the official ballot)

Tom Zukas relocated to Knolls Village in 2000 upon marrying Anita Zukas, who had already made Knolls Village her home in 1996. Together, they have immersed themselves in the community, dedicating numerous years to serving within our community. Tom’s involvement in community service began on the Architectural Control Committee, where he served from 2012 to the present, eventually joined by Anita, who assumed the role of chair in 2015. In 2019, Tom took the helm of the Paint Committee. Both harbor a profound affection for our community, and should Tom be elected, he eagerly anticipates applying his work and life experiences to serve on the board.

Tom’s professional journey is marked by diversity and accomplishment. He commenced his career in the U.S. Navy, serving for six years during the mid-60s. Following that, he ventured into the Computer Service and Subscription Fulfillment Business, managing databases and mailing lists for major catalogs and magazines during the 70s and 80s. In the late 80s, Tom assumed the role of CEO at a publicly traded, multi-divisional company specializing in data and computer technologies. After divesting all four divisions in the early 90s, he founded a national address database business in 1990. His career led him to Colorado in 1995, where he assumed the role of Chief Operating Officer (COO) at a Database Marketing and Software Development company. Through numerous company mergers, Tom held various senior executive roles until the company’s sale in 2000. Subsequently, Tom and Anita embarked on a Consulting Business venture, which they continued until their retirement in 2016.

Since their retirement, they have relished their travels and cherished quality time with their adult children and two beloved grandsons, all while calling our community home.
