It’s time again for Business Briefcase. This week we will reveal a business that made its way to Goodyear and a major corporation that’s looking to hire 400 workers.
Additionally, we will uncover how West Valley residents can take advantage of services offered at a local orthopedic surgery and pain management business.
Landmark Title opens
office in Goodyear
Phoenix-based Landmark Title Assurance Agency recently opened two new offices in Arizona. The growing title and escrow company’s newest branch locations are in Goodyear and Prescott. The privately held company continues to add staff, hiring entry-level and senior positions.
“Plans are underway to expand our footprint in Arizona, and this is just the beginning,” said Vicki Etherton, president of Landmark Title. “We are hiring escrow and title officers and assistants to handle residential and commercial transactions.”
Landmark Title operates nine offices, with plans to open more in the Southwest. In 2020, the company opened its second office in North Scottsdale and its first in the West Valley along with a first in Las Vegas.
Arlene Bejarano will serve as the branch manager for the Goodyear office. Bejarano is a 30-year veteran in the industry and a longtime West Valley resident. The Goodyear office is in the West Valley National Bank Building on North Litchfield Road.
The Prescott branch is under the leadership of Roberta Tindell, who will also continue to manage Landmark Title’s North Scottsdale office on Raintree Road. Travis Totman, an experienced escrow officer in Yavapai County, will join Tindell at the Prescott branch, operating out of the executive offices at The Crossings at Willow Creek while permanent office space at Depot Marketplace is under construction.
“As we continue to open new offices and add staff in the coming year, we remain focused on providing personal attention and quality service to our residential and commercial clients,” said Kristi Smith, vice president of Landmark Title.

West Valley Cigna
subscribers now eligible for care at Phoenix Spine & Joint
Arizonans with commercial health insurance from Cigna can access state-of-the-art, minimally invasive joint replacement surgery under their current policy.
Phoenix Spine and Joint has been contracted with Cigna to provide orthopedic surgery and pain management since Oct. 15. The medical staff of Phoenix Spine and Joint includes board-certified, fellowship-trained doctors Dr. Nathan Moore, Dr. Dan Galat, Dr. Jimmy Chow and Dr. Ann Cheri Foxx, who use robotic-assisted, minimally invasive surgery and evidence-based pain management.
Phoenix Spine and Joint’s minimally invasive philosophy ensures dramatically less pain for patients. Smaller incisions and reduced pain mean less medication and harmful side effects. Patients can expect a substantially shorter recovery period and leave our facility the same day of the procedure. Phoenix Spine and Joint boasts a less than 1% infection rate.
“Since the pandemic began, patients were concerned about the safety of having surgery; but they still want to get state-of-the-art care they deserve,” said Dr. Dan Lieberman, medical director.
This announcement was celebrated by the city of Goodyear.
“We’ve heard so many good things about Phoenix Spine and Joint. They have a great reputation, and they have received high ratings from patients in their care,” Mayor Georgia Lord said.
“We are very pleased to be able to offer our city of Goodyear employees this opportunity to receive state-of-the-art care at a local office that offers evaluation, testing and surgery all in one location. This is a great addition to our employee benefits package.”
Patients can expect concierge service as care coordinators guide them through the entire process. Patients can get scheduled within as little as one week.
The Phoenix Spine and Joint Ambulatory Surgery Center is located at 140 N. Litchfield Road, Suite 110.
