Two West St. Louis County companies are relocating to the same Chesterfield, Missouri, office space, joining forces to provide complementary financial services.
The America Group, a financial advisory company, and Chas. W. DeWitt Insurance Agency, which provides business and personal insurance solutions, will be moving to 390 S. Woods Mill Road, according to JLL, the company that represented the firms during their search for new office space.
The companies will move into the shared 12,000-square-foot office in August, after renovation has been completed. The companies’ goal is to create a hub of financial planning and insurance experts — a one-stop shop where clients can get answers in all areas of financial support and planning.
“The benefits of shared office space can be quite valuable, particularly for companies working in the same or complementary industries,” said David Steinbach, managing director of JLL St. Louis. “For DeWitt and The America Group, they will benefit from shared expenses and more efficient communication, but even more importantly their clients will benefit from having these services aligned in one central location.”
Chas. W. DeWitt Insurance Agency was founded in 1925 and is currently located in Ballwin, Missouri. DeWitt started its business relationship with The America Group in 2011, when Ross Pfeifer, DeWitt’s Vice President, began offering financial planning services to clients of DeWitt through The America Group. In January, Ross Pfeifer, Aaron Stewart, and Jeff Seeburger became co-owners of The America Group. Seeburger serves as President of The America Group.
Seeburger credited JLL with ensuring an uncomplicated move for both companies.
