Wilson West Livesay Advertising

Wilson, West and Livesay.
The three partners who started the agency.

David Livesay is our agency President and head of account service.  David began his career at Woltz & Associates and has been responsible for account service for such clients as Afton Chemical, AMF Bowling, Capital One, Overnite Transportation, and MeadWestvaco/MWV, with special focus on pharma clients such as A.H. Robins, ProEthic Pharmaceuticals, Alliant Pharmaceuticals, Whitby Pharmaceuticals, and UCB Pharma. He’s a graduate of the University of Virginia and received his MBA from Virginia Commonwealth University. And when he’s not putting out fires in the ad world, he’s pickin’ a flattop guitar or fly casting for “Bubba” the smallmouth bass. 


Mike is our vice president and senior art director. Over the years, he’s had the pleasure of working for a number of high-profile companies, including Wyeth-Ayerst, AMF Bowling, Genworth Financial, Afton Chemical, LandAmerica, and MeadWestvaco/MWV, among others.  Mike graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University, where he has also served as a member of the adjunct faculty. He and his wife, Frazier, live in a wonderful Arts & Crafts-style home in Richmond’s Historic Ginter Park.  In whatever spare time he has, Mike enjoys sports with his teenage sons, Matthew and Kellor.


For decades, Calvin’s effervescent copy provided fast relief for clients ranging from political candidates, travel attractions and software consultants, to financial and pharmaceutical powerhouses.  Calvin was a great writer and business partner and a strong influence on the culture of our agency.  Sadly, Calvin passed away in 2008. He is sorely missed, but will always be a part of the spirit of our company.
