Oliver Sullivan

Oliver is a former regional daily newspaper journalist who plays a key role in delivering Prominent’s copywriting and press office services.


A keen writer from a young age, Oliver spent more than two years working in the non-stop buzz of the newsroom at the East Anglian Daily Times, before becoming a senior reporter in the Ipswich Star team.

He now plies his trade writing hard-hitting press releases, features, blogs and award entries for our clients in a host of different sectors.

His words have helped clients win big at award ceremonies, have their stories splashed on the front pages of newspapers and feature on prime-time TV news slots.

He is well-versed in crisis communications and works alongside former newspaper colleague and Media Relations Lead Adam Howlett in providing our press office services.

Oliver studied Journalism and International Relations at De Montfort University in Leicester, spending time writing in New York City, Hong Kong and Prague on the path to his First Class degree.

During that time he travelled to the United Nations Headquarters to report on the UK’s role in supporting refugees and was featured in the Times Higher Education Magazine and Leicester Mercury.

As a reporter he interviewed some of Suffolk’s biggest names, including Ipswich Town legend Terry Butcher and England goalkeeper Nick Pope.

He also interviewed cabinet ministers and was regularly picking up the phone to Suffolk’s MPs, senior councillors and business leaders.

In his spare time, Oliver can regularly be seen at Portman Road cheering on the Tractor Boys, as well as on the continent in Germany supporting his beloved Fortuna Düsseldorf.
