EY Announces David Millican IV of Arkadios Capital as Entrepreneur Of The Year 2024 Southeast Award Finalist

Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) today announced that David Millican, the Founder and CEO of Arkadios Capital, has been named a finalist for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2024 Southeast Award.

The Southeast program celebrates entrepreneurs from Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. Now in its 38th year, Entrepreneur Of The Year is the premier competitive business award recognizing audacious leaders who disrupt markets and transform sectors, leaving a lasting impact on lives.

Millican was selected based on his demonstration of building long-term value through entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth and impact, according to EY.

After building an independent wealth advisory firm to more than $2 billion in assets under management (AUM), Millican witnessed first hand how broker-dealers were shifting their focus to corporate objectives rather than prioritizing the needs of independent advisors and their clients. He launched Arkadios Capital to empower entrepreneurial advisors by providing them with the flexibility and support to excel.

Arkadios had been recognized by the Association for Corporate Growth as one of the fastest growing private companies in Georgia for two straight years, and has been repeatedly recognized by financial industry media as among the top broker-dealers in the country.

Entrepreneur Of The Year celebrates a variety of business leaders for their ingenuity, courage, and entrepreneurial spirit, including original founders, transformational CEOs, and multigenerational family business leaders.

Regional award winners, to be announced on June 20, will join an esteemed community of Entrepreneur Of The Year alumni from around the world. They will then compete for national recognition at the Strategic Growth Forum® in November.
