The clickTributes team

Ron Arsenault - Founder & CEO

Ron has a long history of developing profitable business, planning and executing "out of the box" solutions. Success has come from hard work and Ron's ability to fit together pieces of the puzzle. In 2008, Ron took a new path launching clickTribute's Inc. with his vision to make the funeral home web site the destination, for funeral service consumers, to share and preserve the memory of a loved one.

Trained in communications media, Ron began his career at the Edmonton Journal managing the Obituaries and Notices section. Later, Ron's campaigns won the "Foster Advertising Campaign of the Year" two years in a row. He was recruited by Chesebrough-Pond’s Inc. where he earned assignments as Territory Manager, Key Account Manager, Sales Administration Manager and National Sales Manager. Recruited by Revlon as Western Region Sales Manager, Ron was responsible for directing the Revlon and Charlie sales plans and leading the sales team to the attainment of planned goals. Ron moved to Okanagan Dried Fruit Ltd. as Director of Sales and Marketing, where he helped deliver an eight year compounded sales growth of over 40%. He partnered in an exit strategy that saw the sale of the company to Sun-Rype Products Ltd.

In 2002, Ron re-directed his energy to developing Internet sales and marketing solutions for web publishers like Snowboard.com, Skateboardvillage.com, Colonies.com, and Ultimate-Guitar.com winning business with major brands: Apple iPod, Coors Light, Edge, FuelTV, Greyhound, Honda, Jeep, Garnier Fructis, The North Face, Kokanee, Labatt's, McDonald's, Nissan, Rogers Wireless, SOBE, Sympatico MSN, Tropicana, Toyota, Virgin Mobile, Warren Miller and Whistler.com.
