EY Announces Tyler Wall of SD Bullion as Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2023 Michigan and Northwest Ohio Award Winner

Entrepreneur Of The Year celebrates ambitious entrepreneurs who are building a better world

DETROIT, Dec. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) today announced that Dr. Tyler Wall of SD Bullion was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2023 Michigan and Northwest Ohio Award winner. The Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards program is one of the preeminent competitive awards for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. Dr. Tyler Wall was selected by an independent judging panel made up of previous award winners, leading CEOs, investors and other regional business leaders. The candidates were evaluated based on their demonstration of building long-term value through entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth and impact, among other core contributions and attributes.

SD Bullion is the third largest precious metal e-commerce retailer in the United States. Founded by two pharmacists, the business ships out over $1 billion dollars annually to individuals and businesses looking to diversify their assets into gold, silver, and platinum bars and coins. The story on how SD Bullion began is truly unbelievable and can be found on most major podcast platforms as a mini series called SD Early Years- Building a Billion Dollar Bullion Business. Dr. Wall, while still involved, recently stepped away from CEO of SD Bullion to focus more on his new role as President of a new, 501c3 non profit, Christian education initiative called HIS Pods. In his place, Chase Turner has taken over the reigns as CEO of SD Bullion. Visit SDBullion.com.
