Marco and his wife, Catherine, have two sons, Dino and Alessio, with a new baby expected at the time of his book’s publication. His favourite thing in the world is spending time with his family. He also enjoys reading a good book, PC gaming (Starcraft and Call of Duty in particular) and building remote control model airplanes.
Although Marco enjoys being at home, watching movies (his favourite being The Last of the Mohicans) and listening to his favourite Christian music, he loves the outdoors, especially extreme sports such as walking across the desert, scuba diving and climbing mountains.
His favourite sports include soccer (watching and playing) and mountain biking. When he has a chance to get away, his favourite holiday destination is Rocktail Bay, situated along the coast of KwaZulu-Natal.
An entrepreneur at heart, sales is Marco’s forte. He began his career as an external sales manager in the banking industry. He then became sales manager of a mobile marketing company, after which he opened the doors of his own company in 2005, Eurocom (a mobile marketing company and specialist prize sourcing and fulfillment company).
Rocks – One Man’s Climb from Drugs to Dreams, a real life account of drug addiction, is Marco’s first book, due for release in October ’14.
Marco will be donating the royalties from the sales of his book to his non-proft organisation Mountain Heights.
Mountain Heights helps the addicted on a mental, emotional and physical level by providing inspiration to those who need it. The aim is to bring hope to the addicted through its various initiatives that actively demonstrate the conquering of physical challenges. The ultimate goal is to use the funds raised to build a self-sustaining rehab centre in South Africa.
As a recovered addict, Marco Broccardo understands only too well the pitfalls of drug addiction; having fought for many years to overcome his dependency he has now devoted himself to helping other addicts to recover and to raise awareness of a problem which is deeply entrenched in our society.
