The Vivi Kola Team

A growing & passionate team that lives and breaths all things Vivi Kola!

Christian Forrer

Founder

Christian Forrer is the founder and owner of Vivi Kola and ViCAFE. As he says of himself, the company is like his child. He built the company from scratch with a lot of passion and commitment. As a trained graphic designer, he has an eye for aesthetics and this is reflected in the company. His heart also beats for adventurous expeditions. Especially the multifaceted Africa fascinates him a lot. On his trips he usually only spends the night in a tent in the wild. He gained the essential knowledge for this through a ranger training in Africa.

Sandrine Hedinger is Marketing Manager at Vivi Kola. She combines her talent for multitasking with a great passion for aesthetics and design. As a child of nature, she loves to spend her free time in the mountains, visiting family and friends on Lake Lucerne or working out by jogging and boxing. But she can also take it easy. Especially over coffee and chocolate while she gathers ideas for the next campaign.

Adrian Michel

Head of Finance
E-Mail: amichel@forlam.ch


Adrian is Head of Finance at Vivi Kola. Besides numbers and coffee, his passions include travel and food - fortunately, they can be combined wonderfully. As a result, his adrenaline level rises, especially when he's doing sports or having a charming verbal sparring match with his colleagues.

There is probably no area that Kaj does not know. Besides work, he can be found on the soccer field. As a referee, he has been sprinting across the field for almost 15 years. A special talent are his backflips. At every Christmas party these are a highlight and almost a tradition.

Marcus Berger

Principal Designer
E-Mail: mberger@forlam.ch

Born in Namibia, raised in Cape Town, landed in Zurich as Principal Designer at Vivi Kola. No wonder Marcus switches from German to English and back three times per sentence. He likes Japanese whisky, good design and sports with a high adrenaline level. As a surfer, he is "a pretty chilled guy," he says. Marcus likes good food and culinary experiments, but he doesn't like to be talked into his beloved "braai" aka BBQ.

Phone: +41 78 978 43 30

He loves to spend his time in nature. As a passionate mountaineer, he spends a lot of time in the Swiss Alps with his dog and tent. When he is not in the Alps, he is looking for good surf spots for new destinations. Besides travelling, Lukas lives out his creative streak by restoring furniture or redecorating his flat.

Aaron Fee

Photography & Video Production
E-Mail: afee@forlam.ch

The roots of our photographer and videomaker Aaron Fee are anchored in the pulsating metropolis of San Francisco. The idyllic city of Lucerne, where he now lives, is almost like a small village. When he's not snapping new photos, he likes to spend his free time in nature. With his height of over two meters, he towers over all of us and always has the best shot in sight.

Camilo Antezana

Strategic Advisor
Camilo belongs to the old guard and has experienced the revival firsthand. As a young boy, he had his first experience in his grandfather's wine bottling plant. In his sleep, he would talk aloud about fine grape juices. As if he had already known then that he would build up the Vivi Manufactory at a later date. Rumor has it that he still talks in his sleep today - this time about fine Vivi Kola.

Edon Alidemaj

Logistics
Growing up in France, Edon trained as a chauffeur for all possible vehicle categories. His great love has brought him to Switzerland and now he maneuvers the huge Vivi Kola truck through the narrowest alleys. His flair for vehicles of all sizes is immediately noticeable. You could almost say - gasoline flows through his veins.

Phone: +41 76 451 14 82

David is responsible for live marketing at Vivi Kola. He brings a colorful mix of experience and gives free rein to his creativity at events.

Mebdi is Accountant at Vivi Kola. His flair for numbers and many years of experience at various companies are significant assets to Vivi Kola. He is interested in all topics related to sports, but especially football. He dislikes the cold at all, which is why he likes to travel to warm countries.

Marc Guerraz

Photography & Videography Specialist
E-Mail:marc.guerraz@vivikola.ch

While he continues to study hard at the FHGR, Marc works next door as a Photography & Videography Specialist at Vivi Kola. He is often out and about with his camera, be it in the mountains hiking or skiing, or near fast cars. Order is a big issue for him, which is why he has mastered the art of digital folder structures. "Luck favours the prepared" is always in the back of his mind, so he is always prepared for anything if possible.

Cécile Zwinggi

Disposition
E-Mail: bestellung@vivikola.ch


Among other things, Cécile is responsible for the orders at Vivi Kola. Her grandfather was already a lorry driver at the former mineral spring in Eglisau and delivered Vivi Kola all over Switzerland. What she can't stand is stepping on her children's Lego bricks at night. This pain is probably familiar to many.

Marc Baltensperger

Sales area Ticino
E-Mail: sales@vivikola.ch
Phone: +41 76 508 29 15

After his studies at the HSG, Marc is now ambitiously working at Vivi Kola to spread Vivi drinks in the sunny region of Switzerland. He hopes to soon be able to enjoy a Vivi Kola on Lake Maggiore. Marc's credo is "All you've got is now" that originates from a song he wrote himself. Marc is a passionate drummer and writes his own songs.

Coco

Food Inspector, Chief of Happiness


Coco is the first port of call for all questions about naps and massages. His schedule is therefore usually very full. Those who do manage to win a few minutes of his attention for themselves are rewarded with lots of joy and affection.
