Cécile Nebbot

Communication I Partner & Relationship


Cécile Nebbot (b. 1967, Marseille, France) is an Economist and a Communication Strategist, with Master's degrees in Economics and Brand Content that have forged her roots and keen interest in the social sciences, humanities, politics and semiotics.


During her studies, she acquired a deep expertise in econometrics, playing with the complexity of quantitative data, speculative models, multi-criteria analysis of endogenous and exogenous factors, and a systemic approach, to decipher and interpret—in a hermeneutic way—a wide range of socio-economic phenomena, with the ultimate scope of predicting structural or cyclical trends, and the outbreak of future crises. 


Before joining the Berlin art scene, she spent two decades working for leading consulting firms based in London, New York and Paris. In 2020, she joined the emergent hybrid gem of the re:future Lab, where she is now responsible for communication, brand awareness, brand content and the liaison with stakeholders—advisory board members, program participants, visitors, guests, faculty, alumni—and supports management with sponsorship and fellowship programs, network development, and special events.
