POWERS Insurance and Risk Management, one of the largest family owned and operated independent insurance agencies in the bi-state region, built its headquarters at 6825 Clayton Ave. in the City of St. Louis after razing a building that had been vacant on the property for over 13 years. The 17,000-square-foot building cost approximately $3 million and is the home of both POWERS and sister company Valley Insurance Agency Alliance (VIAA).

POWERS Insurance and VIAA occupy the second and third floors, the Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis leases the first floor, and Fox 2/KPLR 11 has established its West Bureau on site.  E-404, LLC was the general contractor.  Comfort Architecture designed the state-of-the-art three-story building.

“Our new headquarters represent our commitment to the entire region,” said POWERS Insurance President JD Powers.  “This recognition means a great deal to us as we aspire to be a catalyst for unity, growth, and prosperity.”

Founded in 1991, POWERS Insurance provides personal and business insurance, surety, risk management and employee benefits.  Founded in 2006, VIAA generates more than $165 million in written premium and is the regional founding member in Missouri and Southern Illinois for the Strategic Insurance Agency Alliance (SIAA), a $6.6 billion national insurance coalition.
