“With intention and tenacity, you can accomplish anything.” – Michael Duddie – Founder, The Copper Key
The Copper Key excels at working closely with clients to shape and design their vision, creating the perfect event for their guests.
Founders Guus Wickenhagen and Michael Duddie bring more than 40 years of hospitality experience to achieve precisely that.
Chef Wickenhagen began his career as a teenager, soon finding himself at the Michelin starred De Hoop Op d’Swarte Walvis in Amsterdam. From there, he went to the contemporary global dining scene of Supperclub where he rose to Executive Chef. Chef Wickenhagen continued with Supperclub all over Europe with innovative menu concepts that eventually brought him to Los Angeles by way of Rome, London, and San Francisco.
Duddie and Wickenhagen then worked as a duo catering under the banner Q Catering, before launching The Copper Key.
