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.
