Mitchell Thoms started working with Thoms Bros. at an early age 6 years ago. His career in the Green Industry started out just as a “job” to make spending money.

He leads shrub trimming and small landscape installation crews; operates excavators, skid loaders and other equipment; takes on a huge role with larger install crews on big jobs; and, is the lead person on Thoms Bros’ new venture, StoneMakers.
Mitchell has been involved in several training events for StoneMakers; traveling to New Hampshire and Florida. In the Winter of 2015, Mitchell earned is Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI) Certification for Concrete Paver Installation. His other goals include earning his Certified Green Industry Professional (from MNLA) and Landscape Industry Certified Technician (from PLANET) recognitions in the near future as well as attaining his CDL.
