MEET Our Team

Mathijs Pont

An engineer by heart, but equipped with a commercial mindset. Mathijs has gained experience with new, exciting technologies like metal, composite, and plastic Additive Manufacturing, but he also loves the conventional, robust ways of getting things done. Also, he is a huge fan of rugby.

Marcel Edelkamp

Since 1980, Marcel has worked in the CAE industry, where he participated in the evolution of MSC Software GUIs from the time when only black and white terminals existed. Marcel can be approached for any MSC Apex, Nastran, Patran, licensing and hardware related questions and also for benchmarks and services.

Saeid Khalafvand

PhD in Mechanical engineering (Thermal and Fluids) from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (jointly trained at University of Pittsburgh) and worked as a research scientist in The University of Texas and TU Delft for several years. His experience and education has focused on the numerical analysis using different techniques and tools. His ambition is to employ his engineering and research background to improve the quality of life through developing novel technologies. His experience covers a variety of topics including numerical modelling techniques (i.e. FVM, FEM and FSI) and experience in different multi-disciplinary projects (i.e. Biofluids, Biomedical Eng., Medical assist devices).

Serge van den Heuvel

Graduated as mechanical engineer at KU Leuven in 1993. Serge has over 25 years of experience in international sales management.
Serge’s experience covers the entire business spectrum : technical, sales, marketing, business development, P&L, investments, whilst he has carried the responsibility for strategy, market entry and local branch creation in China, India, Japan, Korea, US.
Serge is very passionate about the climate discussion, energy efficiency, renewable energy sources and cycling.
His motto ; “mens sana in corpore sano”.

Maarten Oudendijk

Maarten holds a degree in Computational Mechanics and likes to help customers perform nonlinear simulations. He prefers riding a bike over driving a car.

Melissa Mehlbaum

Went from Student to Specialist. Started at In Summa Innovation for her graduation internship (studied Oriental Languages & Communication – Japanese). During, she got infected with our passion for tech so she just had to stay, despite little technical knowledge.
Likes cooking (& eating), travelling (Japan is her 2nd home), fitness and snowboarding. Loves to learn about all the cool and geeky products and projects our customers create. Always looking for a way to add some creativity in a high-tech world.

Anton van Daal

Owner of In Summa. Has pretty impressive tennis skills. Anton loves to help companies innovate, save cost, improve quality, and test as well as shorten time2market using MSC Software Simulation.
A very curious guy by nature with a profound interest in the galaxy, he mastered the sociotechnical (re)designing of production environments at the Technical University of Eindhoven, combining people and technology. Anton believes that simple solutions are always the best ones. With In Summa he’s working towards a more sustainable world.

Inge Barendregt

Besides personal growth and working result-oriented on projects for our customers, we also feel it’s important to keep the In Summa team spirit. Drinks, a day out, interactive knowledge sessions…. “The more fun you have in your job, the better you perform” is our motto. Technical, high-quality solutions and outstanding service is what makes In Summa. This, combined with an informal working atmosphere and a healthy dose of ambition is what makes In Summa Innovation a challenging employer!

A professional who takes care of all financial accounting so that the rest of the company can focus on the core business. Jurgen makes sure the figures are correct, always available for our team and presented to the authorities on time. Creating a calm environment and a clear overview for everyone involved in driving the business forward.

D2S International

Located in Heverlee Belgium, we offer specialised engineering and consultancy services. We’re engineers specialized in acoustics, noise, vibration and dynamics for railways, buildings, civil structures, industrial and environmental applications.
Numerical simulations apply to a wide range of engineering software across a variety of applications in the automotive, marine, railway and heavy industry. The level of sophistication involved in these simulations and has attracted a diverse and loyal customer base.
D2S International prides itself at proposing cost effective solutions that are also low maintenance and thus contributes to low life cycle costs.

Sayfield International

Dedicated to supporting the Benelux market in improving the quality of using Multi-Body simulations (also called MB-Simulations) as an advanced CAE simulation tool. Employees of Sayfield International have created and evaluated mathematical simulation environments since 1985. Since these days, extensive experience and knowledge were gained about the different aspects of this prototyping approach.
In close cooperation with our partners In Summa Innovation and resources at MSC.Software we promote the use of CAE simulations (and MB-Simulations in particular) as an indispensable tool for all companies involved in Mechanical Engineering and production of products with moving mechanical components.
Our experience has contributed to a work approach where evaluation and verification has become a key aspect before application of simulation results. Knowledge of pitfalls in using the virtually unlimited power of mathematical simulation tools is a crucial difference to less experienced researchers in this work area.
