The OPEO team

OPEO is a team of 30 consultants who share a passion for industry and its human dimension.

Our ambition is to help industrial companies and their ecosystems become leaders in their markets and to promote a competitive, sustainable, human and resilient industry.

OPEO, a Great Place To Work®.

 

A Great Place To Work® is the benchmark for quality of life at work. The Best Workplaces label is obtained through a structuring methodology that evaluates the perception of a company from its employees’ point of view, as well as its HR and CSR practices. Through meeting certain metrics, it rewards companies that are considered good places to work.

At OPEO, we have built our culture on fundamental values and horizontal management, which encourages dialogue and continuous training. These efforts were recognised in 2019 by obtaining a Great Place To Work certification and second place in the 2020 prize list of companies with fewer than 50 employees

Our values.

The values we build as a team guide us on a daily basis to help our customers of all sizes be more efficient, collectively minded and innovative.

Simon Ratival

Consultant, Agro ParisTech graduate

Simon joined OPEO in 2018, drawing on his experience as a project manager in a refinery and then production manager in the sugar industry.

He was attracted by the firm’s commitment to industry and its territorial positioning.

‘When I arrived at OPEO, I was impressed by the involvement of the partners within the teams and the goodwill of all’.

The management team.

OPEO was created in 2012 by three former industry managers, all of whom had worked for McKinsey & Company in France at some point. Since then, management at OPEO has been enriched with new talent from various industrial backgrounds, as well as partners from the team, who carry out our aim to renew industrial leadership in Europe.

At OPEO, we believe that industry is vital to a better-distributed, more mixed and positive economy. We are passionate about helping manufacturers of all sizes to be more efficient, collective and enthusiastic on a daily basis! Climate, supply chains, digital development, humans–the future of our industries remains to be built and much remains to be invented, which is exactly what drives us every day as a team
