The Chamber

Richard A. Shively

Upon graduating from Miami University, Rick worked in radio, business media production and interactive media development.  Rick specialized in developing applied marketing communications using film, video, digital interactive media and internet based projects.

In 1999, seeing media markets change and retract, he decided to change course and work to help individuals and business build their financial security.

Fourteen years ago, he began a new career in financial services working with insurance and then additionally licensed for work with securities based solutions.

Today Rick is an independent Investment Advisory Representative working with Transamerica Financial Advisors.  Rick is also a Senior Marketing Director with the Wealthwave Team of the World Financial Group.  As an SMD, Rick is expanding the advisor team of the regional office in order to better serve our clients in the Southwest Ohio Tristate region.

Rick has a deep interest in furthering the financial education of people.  He is also actively involved in supporting local primary and secondary education efforts.  Rick believes a closer relationship with education institutions, community, business and government is vital to the continued strength of our region, our state and our country.

Rick keeps his hand in media providing voice over and announcer services.  He is known to many as the Voice of the Lakota West Marching Firebirds. 

Rick married his high school sweetheart 40 years ago this June.  Ann has been teaching for 36 years in parochial and public schools.  Rick and Ann have three adult children, one daughter in law and two grandchildren.  Those of you who know Rick have undoubtedly been subject to this enthusiastic and proud grandpa.

Living in West Chester for 28 years, Rick has been an active member of the West Chester Liberty Chamber Alliance for 10 years and currently serves on the Board of Directors as Vice Chair.
