Maritime Management Team

John Ware


Senior Management.

John has worked for the family business as 2nd generation for 57 years! He has done it all from driving an oil truck, transport, to being “the service department.”

To this day John still holds his master oil burner’s license and will get a couple calls a year for him to personally service the customer’s heating system! While he doesn’t do service calls anymore, he still comes into the office daily!

Susan Ware Page


Senior Management with responsibility for all company operations including fuel hedging and supply contracts.

After college and working for Fortune 500 Safeco Financial in Seattle, Susan decided to return home and learn the family business from her Father, John. Being close to her family was most important. Susan has been on numerous State & local boards and was inducted into the USM Hall of Fame for basketball in 2012 and the Midcoast Sports Hall of Fame in 2014. Susan’s pride & joy are her two young sons, Jack & Blake.
