The Vivi Kola Team

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

Christian Forrer


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.

Melanie Oberhofer actively supports the sales team as sales support. At the same time, she is completing her vocational baccalaureate.

Sandrine Hedinger

Senior Marketing Manager
Phone: +41 78 410 28 86

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

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. And he does win this one (almost) every time, thanks to his humor and insight.

Stefan Becker

Sales regions Central Switzerland, Lucerne, Zug, Aargau, Seeland
Telefon: +41 76 743 76 07

Stefan is responsible for sales in the regions Central Switzerland, Bern, Lucerne, Zug, Aargau and Seeland. He loves communicating with his clients and those who want to become them. In his spare time, he works for an association that keeps an old freight train steam locomotive in working order so that special tours can be carried out. He likes to get his hands dirty in the engine shed on Saturdays. In addition, he is responsible for marketing and public relations for the aforementioned association.

Kaj Augstburger

Operations Manager
Phone: +41 78 220 24 88

Kaj Augstburger is Operations Manager at Vivi Kola. Since his seven-year employment with Vivi Kola, he has been found everywhere, whether in logistics for our sister company ViCAFE, or as a sales representative for Vivi Kola. 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.

Saïd Andreis

Operator Production
Said has settled in very well in the Vivi Manufaktur team in Eglisau and can live out his enthusiasm for technical work and colossal machines in the filling plant. He doesn't mince his words and always brightens up the team. He is already working diligently on a remix of the Vivi Kola Samba. Stay tuned!

Marcus Berger

Principal Designer

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.

Lukas Pünter

Sales area Zurich
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

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.

Markus Friedli

Production Manager

Markus witnessed the very first bottling after Vivi Kola was refounded in 2010 - back then as an employee at Mineralquelle Eglisau. Today, he ensures that our production runs smoothly on the bottling line. In his spare time, he is passionate about brewing his own beer and is actively involved in the men's team.

David Bloch

Marketing Specialist
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. He supports the marketing team with openness, organizational talent and an aesthetic flair. His motto "Getting ahead together" not only shapes the way he works, but is also evident in his passionate attitude on the handball field.

Andreas Scheuble

Operator Production

Andreas cuts a fine figure both on the skateboard and on our machines. He has been working as a bottling operator for 20 years. Although it was his first time operating the bottle washing machine with us, he perfected its operation within a few weeks. He prefers to spend his vacations with his family in Sicily.

David Höpfinger

Industrial Mechanic

David not only lets the bottles fly over our bottling plant, but also enjoys flying at lofty heights himself. After his work as a specialist in fine-tuning the machines, he can be found in the flight simulator. His love of fitness is combined with an equally great love of currywurst.

Luigi Nuzzo


Luigi is a child of the sun. This is hardly surprising, as our driver originally comes from sunny Lecce in Italy. When the northern part of Switzerland is shrouded in fog, he quickly flees to Ticino or directly to Italy to recharge his batteries and get back to his new passion, drinks.

Marc Baltensperger

Sales area Ticino
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.

Yves Häberli

Sales Berne area
Phone: +41 78 730 48 54

Yves Häberli is responsible for sales in the Bern region and surrounding area. After almost 10 years of experience in project management events/sponsoring, Yves switched to the customer side and worked for an international beverage manufacturer in sales and events throughout Switzerland for 3 years. Now Yves is excited to use the knowledge he has gained in the F&B sector for Vivi Kola.

Mebdiler Nasufi


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. Mebdi always comes to the office in a good mood and upbeat - even on cold and rainy days.

Cécile Zwinggi


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.


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.
