Who Are We?

The history of Navillus can be traced right back to the very origins of the British promotional merchandise industry.

Owner Richard Sullivan’s father Dennis started the business following on from a long, successful career in London’s West End, during the advertising industry’s heyday in 1960s Soho.

After several changes in direction and style, we’re still going strong decades later, driven by our firm belief that the best way to manage customer projects is to lead from the front.
 

 

Ancient History

Photo of Richard & Tamara SullivanRichard studied archaeology, travelled the globe and then went on to work in the City after graduation. In 1992 he embarked on a new journey when he took over Navillus. Having already developed an experienced perspective on promotional advertising, Richard had a desire to offer a personal service that was both unique and innovative.
 

Tamara worked at Navillus in 2006 as the business began to grow. A new generation within the company quickly developed. While completing a Master’s degree in Late Antique and Byzantine Studies she worked with artists and musicians and then went on to work at the Royal Opera House before re-joining as a Director in 2014. 

 

 

Present Day

Richard, Tamara and the team bring a wide range of interests and experience to Navillus, coupled with attention to detail, passion for quality and a drive to provide the highest levels of customer satisfaction.

Bringing us up to date, The Navillus team have had a busy 12 months. In 2019 we doubled in size when we took over the running of our neighbours and fellow long time suppliers of merchandise, Club Row Creations.
Finally, we relocated to a new bigger office in the centre of Historic Greenwich where we are still a stone's throw from the Thames, and working from a converted pub The Grey Coat Boy.

One of the true benefits of working with us is that you work directly with the company owners. It’s a simple, honest and successful business plan that allows you to be in control at all times.

We welcome clients old and new to come to our Greenwich base to discuss projects and business partnerships. We are 15 minutes from the Square Mile and Canary Wharf, on the Docklands Light Railway Overground, and Riverboats.
