REDW LLC is pleased to announce that Marcus Clarke has officially joined the team as Principal effective July 1, 2011. Marcus had been working with REDW as interim IT director on a contractor basis since February 2011.
Marcus Clarke is the founder of Meridian Group Inc., based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Founded in 1989 as an IT services firm, Meridian became the region’s premier Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) under the domain of IPkey.com. Some of Meridian’s clients included federal, tribal and local government, banking, gaming, healthcare, education, and a variety of commercial businesses.
Marcus began his IT career in the emerging technology of commercial wide area network systems (WANs). This led him to United Video in Tulsa, Oklahoma, managing nationwide delivery of data transmission by commercial satellite.

After several years providing network management services, he focused on information security monitoring and management for risk-sensitive clients.
