"Mr. Huse has the drive and energy necessary to see complex projects through to completion, guiding teams and customers through the entire process.

Benjamin Moore & Co.

From a relatively young age, Arne began to demonstrate his leadership skills when at the age of twenty, he became the youngest 7-11 Store Manager in the history of the Canadian company. While a Sales Rep for a paint company in Prince George, BC in 1993, Arne purchased his first 486 laptop with the express purpose of using contact management to manage his large customer base. Growing his territory to one of the largest dollar and profit margin areas in the company, Arne was promoted to a sales territory in the Fraser Valley.


Arne moved to Benjamin Moore Paint in 1999, and took over the Fraser Valley territory. Through his selling skills, effective use of contact management, and business technology, Arne accomplished double-digit growth in all but one of the six years he managed his territory. In 2003, Arne was asked to lead the Canadian implementation of Microsoft Customer Relationship Management (CRM) for Benjamin Moore. Arne accomplished this while continuing to manage his growing territory, as well as attend the Sales and Marketing Management Program at UBC.


After completion of the Canadian project, Arne was asked to lead the business side of the North American CRM implementation for Benjamin Moore, full time. As the Senior Business Project Management Analyst for Benjamin Moore, headquartered in New Jersey, Arne lead the CRM initiative while continuing to live in Chilliwack. Arne has now gladly given up crazy travel schedule to work with companies in the Fraser Valley.


In 2007, Arne authored a research paper entitled “The CRM Dilemma” which has received much acclaim within the CRM industry, and has been noted on several internal Microsoft blogs for its unique approach to the lack of CRM adoption by users.

Arne has recently finished his second term as chairman of Yarrow Alliance Church and is currently leading the finance team. Arne will be heading down with a team again this year to build a house for a single mom in an impoverished area of Mexico.
