Made in heaven was founded in early 2019 by two entrepreneurs with a passion for sales&marketing and product&innovation management.
Dirk Verhaeghe is managing partner and an experienced sales, marketing, product and innovation professional.
He started his career in telecoms at BT where he held several positions from key account manager to director for commercial operations and strategy.
In 2008 he became an independent management consultant focused on sales and marketing performance (lean) and innovation. In that role he worked on several consulting assignments at large and medium size corporates (e.g. Proximus, bpost, Niko, Delhaize, Q8). He was also co-founder of The Opportunity Factory, a start-up company, developing and marketing products for sustainable urban mobility.
Working as a consultant and matchmaker the past decade, he’s convinced that having the right man/woman on the job is half the work.
After 20 years in the business he developed a passion for innovation and a
no-nonsense-getting-things-done mentality. He likes to work with people, believes there is passion and creativity in each of us to accomplish great new things.
He holds a master degree in Applied Economics from UG and an MBA from Vlerick Business School.
Bert Heyens is an entrepreneur, marketeer and founder of If we were you, a B2B marketing agency. Knowing the market and having set-up several companies Bert will act as a sparring partner.
They share the same vision on matchmaking now and how it will be in the future.
