Bidadoo Expands Leadership Team, Sees Results

Bidadoo, a large and trusted business and industrial auction service on eBay has expanded its sales and leadership team to meet the surge of online remarketing demand and activity.

Fueled in part by COVID-19, bidadoo has seen a 188% growth in site traffic during the pandemic.

bidadoo is expanding deeper into new regions and markets, and is excited about the appointment of several key people in sales leadership and their contributions.

A key component in this year’s rapid growth has been provided by the leadership of Mark Hanson, vice president of sales. Joining bidadoo in early 2020, Hanson came from Manitou Group, where he led the North American operations as CEO. Before that, Hanson was vice president of sales at Generac and vice president of global accounts at Terex. He spent 10 years at Genie Industries / Terex Corporation, rising from regional sales manager to vice president of North American sales.

“We are very pleased with Mark joining the bidadoo leadership team, driving customer success and market growth” said Howard Hawk, president of bidadoo. “He has been a great fit for our culture and has the vision and drive to create the world’s premier equipment buying and selling experience.”

Said Hanson, “I am proud to be working on the bidadoo team. “Our company and team are focused on providing customers with solid value, efficient remarketing solutions, and the best net returns for their equipment. We stand behind everything we do and sell and operate with a DNA of integrity in a market with massive growth potential.”

Also key in driving customer success with bidadoo are Steve Gorman and Chris Markos.

Both joined bidadoo recently and have played significant roles in bidadoo’s team and market growth this year.

Gorman is the new regional manager of sales for the Great Lakes region. He is expanding opportunities for bidadoo in the transportation, heavy industrial, dealer, and rental segments. A heavy equipment auction industry veteran, Gorman brings bidadoo decades of sales management experience gained at Equify Auctions, Iron Planet, and Ritchie Bros.

“bidadoo treated us great and sold our equipment for a bigger return than we expected,” said Jeff Allingham, president of Allingham Corporation. “Steve Gorman was extremely professional from beginning to end. We will be using them again in the future.”

Markos is the new regional manager of sales for the Gulf Coast region. He is expanding opportunities for bidadoo in the energy, oil and gas, and industrial markets. In addition, Markos is also rapidly expanding bidadoo’s depth in the general construction, contracting, and rental segments. With deep business development experience at Ritchie Bros. and Generac -- and as an intelligence officer in the United States Army -- Markos brings a wealth of leadership experience to bidadoo.

Propelled by the leadership, vision, and efforts of Hanson, Gorman, Markos, and team, bidadoo’s growth is surging as it provides high net returns for customers.
