In 2017 VIAA and sister company POWERS Insurance & Risk Management relocated their headquarters to the City of St. Louis at 6825 Clayton Ave. The companies occupy the second and third floors of the 17,000-square-foot building, leasing the first floor to the Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis.

“We created this national alliance 15 years ago as a way to stabilize independent agencies by perpetuating their efforts,” said VIAA’s CEO Pierce W. Powers, Jr. “We basically provide the airplane plus the tools to fly to those who come on board and join our alliance.” Powers added that he is “very blessed to be in business with my children, who are both my partners and fellow entrepreneurs.”
