Cécile van Oppen


Cécile has been involved in achieving breakthroughs in social issues for many years. She developed herself at the interface of innovation and sustainability and has written academic articles on the importance of different organisational structures to achieve sustainable goals. She focuses increasingly on initiating and forging project-like collaborations. After eight years of consulting experience, Copper8 emerged: Cécile founded the company together with Noor Huitema.

Cécile is an idealist through and through, but she has both feet on the ground – after all, we live in a capitalist society. She is inspired by content and connects her analytical skills with her ability to get business done. She knows how to make different parties enthusiastic and, more importantly, how to connect them sustainably.

Cécile is a former swimmer, sailing fanatic, amateur cook and adventurer.
