LeadiD, the first neutral, privacy-friendly, trusted arbiter of lead transactions, today announced a significant addition to its executive team with the appointment of Blair Lyon as Chief Marketing Officer.

Lyon comes to LeadiD with over 21 years of experience building high tech start-ups and delivering award-winning marketing solutions for the Fortune 1000. Before joining LeadiD, Lyon was Vice President of Marketing at Monetate, Inc., the leading digital personalization and customer experience solution for Best Buy, Nike, Macy’s, and other marquee brands.

Earlier in his career, Lyon was a founding member and the head of marketing for DuPont ESnet, a new venture division dedicated to streamlining the development cycle for leading apparel retailers with their global supply chain. Lyon began his technology career at CAD software developer CDI, rising to Far East Director of Business Development where he was responsible for bolstering sales and building the company's infrastructure along the Pacific Rim.
“LeadiD is an essential component for improving not only a brand’s marketing performance, but also providing a better end-to-end consumer experience,” said Lyon. “I look forward to helping LeadiD clients harness the tremendous potential of a transparent customer acquisition process powered by data insight they can’t get anywhere else.”

With unmatched data, LeadiD is the industry standard for authenticating lead origin and history and the authentication platform of choice for firms of all sizes. LeadiD’s presence at the source of a lead event has also positioned the company to add a TCPA solution to its product line that addresses the recent TCPA regulation changes.
