<![CDATA[[caption id="attachment_918" align="alignleft" width="276"] Tom Davis was honored as a spotlight of the week in the Phoenix Business Journal for its appointment to Vice President.[/caption] Name: Tom Davis New position and organization: Vice President of Pioneer Title Agency Family: My wife, Karen, and grown daughters Sarah and Kelly. I am also a new grandparent to Jonah, Lincoln and Marlowe. Pets (and their names): Our dog, Sophie Favorite cuisine/restaurant: I love Mexican – or anything from Arrowhead Grill. Hobbies: I love to SCUBA dive and ride ATVs as well as hike and camp throughout Arizona. Hometown: I am a proud Phoenix native – GO ALHAMBRA LIONS! What attracted you to your new opportunity? “Commitment to Service” is more than just their mission statement on a piece of paper. Pioneer Title Agency is not only the largest title agency in Arizona; it is a family owned business that takes care of its customers, employees and the community at large. As other title agencies were closing their doors during the downturn in the real estate market, Pioneer persevered and grew due to the dedication of everyone from the family who owns the business to the interns getting their first business experience through us. Most exciting prior business experience: In the early 2000s, as founder and president of Westland Title, it was not only exciting but an honor to be named among the “Best Places to Work” by the Phoenix Business Journal three years in a row, which spoke to our company culture, something Pioneer Title Agency finds equally as important as I. Career advice: Reputation matters. Don’t aspire to be the most beloved or most feared. Aspire to be universally respected. First job: Believe it or not – in publishing. I worked for Pueblo Publishers while in high school. Go Alhambra Lions! To view this story in the Phoenix Business Journal, please click here.
