Mike Thorn joined War Shore as a driver in early 2017 and quickly demonstrated the skills that led to him taking over as the company’s Operations Manager in Jessup, MD. Mike is a retired Howard County police officer with an array of interests and equally impressive knowledge base. He soon became instrumental in improving the planning and execution of War Shore’s logistics and delivery mission. Mike was responsible for upgrading the company’s entire distribution facility last year, and he currently directs all drivers, manages inventory and customer orders, and maintains the safety and operation of all vehicles and equipment. Mike has proven to be an invaluable jack-of-all-trades for our small but rapidly growing company.
Mike graduated from Andover High School Linthicum, Maryland, before attending culinary school. Ultimately, he decided to train to become a police officer, and he served the Howard County force for 22 years. He also attended casino dealers school where he finished number one in his class and worked for Maryland Live Casino. Mike’s currently back at school learning how to fly small planes to obtain his pilot’s license.
When he’s not spending time with his wife, Donna, son, Michael, and daughter, Kristi, you will find him hunting, fishing, or playing poker. Mike is also an avid falconer who trains and hunts with raptors. We are thankful to have Mike Thorn as part of the War Shore team!
