Rocío was born in Madrid. Ever since she was little she’s felt an immense curiosity for different cultures and nationalities, which led her to study Tourism.
From the beginning she has made training and practical experience compatible, integrating herself in the hotel world, in Sofitel Madrid Airport (Accor Group) in order to gain a real vision of different international businesses. Shortly afterwards, she discovered the concept of ‘business centres’, an idea that captured her, as it would allow her the option of adding expansive training in a place exclusively dedicated to any kind of international business from diverse sectors. In 2002 she started working at Regus Business Centre as Customer Service Representative, a year later becoming Operations Manager for the centre. After more than 6 years, Rocío (a big fan of knowledge and new challenges) felt the need to broaden her knowledge on ‘the other side’, so she decided to enrol in the European University of Madrid and gain her Nursing degree.
While reading her first year of the degree, she was offered a post leading a new business centre in Affirma Group as Centre Manager, at one of the most innovative places at that time, the “Torre de Cristal” in Madrid’s Four Towers. Rocío found a balance between her studies and hospital hours and the development of the business centre over the following 4 years. In 2012 she graduated from nursing and continued working at the Business Centre and in event organization.
And then an ant appears in her story… to whom she could not better relate! The ant is the most representative symbol of motivation and overcoming obstacles (fundamental mottos in Rocío’s life).
In September 2015 Rocío began to work as Office Manager and Personal Assistant Fernando Vega Olmos and Alex Pallete. This allowed her the wonderful opportunity of being part of this ‘fresh-air escape’ almost from day one. Why Picnic? Rocío looks for enthusiasm, fun, passion for creation, and admiration for those who create, light, empathy, curiosity, being surround by the top talent… and Picnic is the ideal camping ground for it all. Being a Picnicker at its best.
