Our team

Meet Egbert and Ruud, the owners of Copernicus. Together they have many years of experience within IT, nationally and internationally. Copernicus was founded in 2000 by Egbert and his associates at the time. Ruud came on board in 2014 and they have been managing Copernicus together ever since.

Egbert Ellenkamp

After his studies and military service, Egbert started as an IT consultant at DHL International in 1993. There he was responsible for realizing EDI connections with DHL’s customers. In March 2000, Egbert founded Copernicus together with his then associates with the aim of helping organizations with their electronic data exchange. Initially based on technology from external partners, but from 2010 on from our own integration platform “Niklas”. After the departure of his associates, he found a suitable new partner in Ruud in 2014. Together they now are the management of Copernicus.

“For me, the most important thing is to build a long-term relationship with customers. I like to think along with the customer: What do they want? What is the scope? How do we solve this? That’s my passion. To give advice based on my many years of knowledge and experience and to create the best integration solutions that they can use and build on for years to come.”

Ruud Vrolijk

Ruud studied Business Economics and worked for many years in various sales, management and executive positions at Hewlett-Packard, the last 5 years as Vice-President HP Europe, Middle-East & Africa (EMEA) and General Manager Business Critical Systems. There he was responsible for P&L, sales, marketing, channel and business development. He came into contact with Egbert in 2013, after which he joined Copernicus in 2014 and now forms the board with Egbert. Ruud mainly focuses on the development, sales and marketing of CoperniCare solutions in the healthcare sector.

“There is a lot of room for improvement within the healthcare sector in the field of data exchange between healthcare providers and healthcare providers themselves. But it can also be done more efficiently and effectively in the field of logistics, stock management, warehouse management and track & trace. It is my passion to be able to make an important contribution to this with CoperniCare.”
