Introducing our new Managing Partner for Rocket Europe

We are thrilled to announce the details of the Rocket team based in our new office in Antwerp, Belgium. As the headquarters for our new European foothold we would like to personally introduce Jan Heylen - Managing Partner.

Jan Heylen is the Managing Partner for Rocket Belgium. Jan started his career in 2001 in the chemical industry, working on procurement/distribution enhancement projects. With every project implementation, the company became an end-user of SAP R/3 3.1, with a SAP impact waiting to be worked out on every project. Jan then moved into the SAP consulting business. Starting off with the traditional modules SD/MM/WM, "I was blown away by the functionality of Service Parts Management (SPM) built specifically for Caterpillar and Ford in 2005. SAP saw the opportunity to market the warehousing part separately and called it Extended Warehouse Management. Finally a mature warehousing solution in their portfolio and I have been doing EWM since 2008 (almost) fulltime". "Working for Rocket Consulting for +2 years and the fit in culture made us realise we could do more and better things together so we’re very excited to have joined forces".
