The Essential List

The Essential List: Jean-Francois Sacco

Give the founder and CCO of Rosapark a ‘Jambon Beurre Cornichon’ and you have one happy chap

The Essential List: Jean-Francois Sacco

Jean-Francois Sacco needs nothing more than a black coffee, a kiss from his wife and “a lot of courage” to get his day started the right way. Once the day is underway, it’s onto his classic BMW motorcycle and off to Rosapark, the agency of which he is the co-founder and CCO. Life isn’t all work, work, work though. He vacations in Portugal and snacks on the good stuff in his spare time.
