Jerneja Kamnikar

Founder and director

““I remember the first catering we organized at Vivo. It was quite exciting, in 1998, you could say back in the last century. We were expecting 170 guests, which is a huge bite for a debutant so there was a lot of adrenaline. The client was experienced and demanding, so he ordered Vivo, he wanted a change - different, better.””
