So… what’s with the yellow arrow?

Our Story & Team

Follow Our Yellow Arrow

The Worthington “W” has a yellow arrow cutting through it, and there’s a story behind that.

Several years ago, our Founder Paula walked part of the famed “Camino de Santiago” in Northern Spain – a centuries-old trail system that spans the country. Yellow arrows mark the path, giving travelers the confidence they’re headed the right way.

Simple in nature, an arrow can serve as a powerful symbol to provide navigation on any journey. It’s a wayfinder and guide.

Our goal is to be the yellow arrow for our clients, confidently guiding them in the direction they wish to go.
