Arne Kular, Business Development Manager,
Pacesetter Equipment Ltd.
After graduating from the University of Alberta, Arne
began working for PepsiCo Foods. He was promoted to
account development manager after his first year. The following
year the president of PepsiCo Foods made a visit to
tour Arne's stores in his district.
Arne spent some time in Europe looking after his
mother. When he returned, he moved to Calgary to be
with his fiancée, Isha. This led to Arne working full time
at Pacesetter Equipment Ltd as the company's office manager
– learning the business from the administrative side
of things. As time progressed, began selling and renting
out units to customers and generating new business for
us. After a year on the job, we promoted Arne to business
development manager of sales and marketing. With
his previous job experience, hard work and dedication, it
only made sense.
In his new role, Arne spearheaded two major projects
for us so far. The first was designing and building our new
and improved website and the second was designing and
building our own in house trucking application.
