bidadoo is expanding its sales and leadership team to meet the surge of online remarketing demand and activity.

As further fueled by COVID-19, bidadoo has attracted a 188 percent growth in site traffic during this period. bidadoo is expanding deeper into new regions and markets.

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.

"I am proud to be working on the bidadoo team" said Hanson. "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."
