Let’s Bid Local’s newest Executive

Each day brings us closer to our live date and eventual launch of alpha product. Part of our philosophy at Let’s Bid Local is an aggressive strategy to continue to search for and add valuable people to our team. We want to ensure we have the best and brightest people working towards our goals.

We’re excited to introduce Marc Perreault who joins our core executive team as our Chief Information Security Officer. Marc brings over 15 years of experience in various IT and Security related roles across multiple vectors such as Government, Healthcare, Financial and Industrial Manufacturing. His personal resume is deep and impressive and carries such designations as CCNA, CCNP and CISSP.

As a company focused on our local communities, we asked Marc a few questions related to his background, his interest in blockchain and how he likes to spend his free time.

How long have you been involved in security practices and how would you describe your background in security?

I’ve been involved in security, mostly from the network engineering perspective for over 10 years. More recently, I’ve been focusing more attention on systems vulnerability analysis and network penetration testing.

What was your motivation for joining the Let’s Bid Local team?

? It’s simple. As a small business owner, user of other market sites as well as a hobbyist, I truly believe that Let’s Bid Local is an answer to the major issues surrounding the current market and auction-based sites that we all use. Safety, reputation and transaction assurance top this list for me personally.

As a community-focused application, how do you hope to improve your community with Let’s Bid Local?

Mainly from the safety perspective. I think that many people are cautious when using the services out there and they should be. Let’s Bid Local is the game changer that can improve the current second-hand market space significantly.

What’s your favorite way to unwind and relax?

As a hands-on kind of guy, my favorite ways to unwind are to build and fix stuff. I have several project motorcycles that I work on as well as working as a maker/designer/partner with my other business Little Mouse on the Prairie and the Prairie Moto clothing and accessory line.
