Meet The Team
As the current owner of the company, Daniel Zeuli is at the helm of infusing old-fashioned values with modern techniques. Daniel spent most of his college years painting alongside his grandfather, Tom Zeuli, which provided a rich backdrop for his leadership at the company. His academic pursuits led him to a Business degree from UW-Eau Claire, which he will be completing in 2024. Balancing his responsibilities, Daniel played for the UW-Eau Claire football team for four years. When not leading the business or focusing on school, Daniel indulges in golf, fishing, and traveling.
Founder and Supervisior
Tom Zeuli, the founder of Zeuli Paint, is now a consultant who occasionally participates in various jobs despite his retirement. Having painted for the people of Hudson, WI, and its surrounding areas for over 40 years, his work goes beyond the company walls - Tom also served the city of Hudson as the Parks Director before his retirement and has been part of the Hudson Fire Department since 1978. His deep reservoir of knowledge and his commitment to old-fashioned values have significantly shaped the company's ethos, an influence gratefully acknowledged by his grandson, Daniel. An avid outdoorsman, Tom doesn't hang up his boots when off-duty; he's an enthusiastic cross-country skier and participates in the Birkebeiner every year. He also fishes and hunts whenever he can.
As the Production Manager, Joe Swanson is the link between customer visions and the final product. He handles production scheduling, customer liaison, and problem resolution with finesse, ensuring a seamless journey from concept to completion. Joe is not just skilled at managing projects but also at crafting custom fishing rods, a passion that led him to establish his own company and where he spends a lot of his time when he's not working with Zeuli Paint. He is a UW-Eau Claire alumnus with a business degree and was a tight end for the university's football team, where he achieved an all-conference award within the WIAC. His multifaceted experience and the ability to maintain open communication lines with customers make him an invaluable asset to the team.
