Wilmington, Del. (April 13, 2023) – Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) today announced that Jeffrey Meiler, CEO and Founder of Marlette Holdings, Inc., the parent company of Best Egg, was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2023 Greater Philadelphia Award finalist. Now in its 37th year, Entrepreneur Of The Year is one of the preeminent competitive business awards for transformative entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who are building a more equitable, sustainable, and prosperous world for all.

Meiler was selected by an independent panel of judges. Entrepreneurs were evaluated based on their demonstration of building long-term value through entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth, and impact, among other core contributions and attributes.

Marlette Holdings, Inc. is a financial technology provider whose subsidiaries develop and operate Best Egg. This leading financial confidence platform provides flexible solutions to help people with limited savings confidently navigate their everyday finances.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by EY among an impressive group of finalists for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2023 Greater Philadelphia Award,” said Meiler. “Our goal in founding Marlette Holdings, Inc. and the Best Egg platform was to create more opportunities for financially responsible consumers with limited savings by giving them access to the money they need for something unexpected or to enjoy life—whatever that means to them.  We deeply appreciate this recognition of our continued effort toward achieving this goal.”

Regional award winners will be announced on June 8 during a special celebration. Judges will then consider the winners for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards, which will be presented in November at the annual Strategic Growth Forum®, one of the nation’s most prestigious gatherings of high-growth, market-leading companies. The Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner will then move on to compete for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™ Award in June 2024.  

The Entrepreneur Of The Year program has recognized more than 11,000 entrepreneurs throughout the U.S. since its inception in 1986, and it has grown to recognize business leaders across 145 cities in over 60 countries around the world.
