A growing business: the people behind DoveVivo


An overview of our business: let us introduce our people.

DoveVivo has been growing for 10 years now, a decade defined by continued success. But who are the people behind the business? Today we want to introduce them to you, starting with the founders, Valerio Fonseca, Chairman and CEO, and William Maggio, CEO, whose idea it was to create the business. They were then joined by a group of shareholders in 2016, when the company changed name to DoveVivo S.p.A.
