Join Our Team
Being a BMSS team member means having the resources and opportunities to build the life you want. At BMSS, you will discover that not all accounting firms are alike.
Let’s be honest, there is a herd of accounting firms out there. So, what sets our firm apart from the rest? That’s easy. Our people.
Our firm was established with the desire for our people to have a life outside of work because we believe that if you work hard, you also deserve to play hard. We offer a great work environment with top-notch benefits. Early on, we realized that happy employees equal happy clients because they then have a consistent engagement team each year. Not only do we provide consistency, but our people focus on providing an exceptional client experience, which is built on developing relationships and creating innovative solutions to better serve our clients.
It’s in our firm DNA to work hard to nurture individual talents, support professional growth, recognize the importance of a personal life and promote community involvement. At BMSS, you will Discover the Difference.
In 1991, Keith Barfield, Don Murphy and John Shank decided to leave a large, local firm to establish a new type of public accounting firm. The goal was to build a workplace that values character, family and life/work balance, while creating a professional environment where each individual is treated with respect.
Nearly 30 years later, BMSS has grown into a top five accounting firm in Alabama with 30 partners, 94 certified public accountants and approximately 225 people across all businesses and offices. Broadly based, BMSS serves clients in the revenue range of $1 million to $50 million. The majority of the firm’s clients are family-owned/operated businesses; however, we work with startups, private equity, smaller main street businesses, nonprofits and municipalities, and we serve one of the largest family-owned businesses in the state of Alabama with over $3 billion in revenue operating worldwide. BMSS is a member of the prestigious BDO Alliance USA, which allows access to BDO’s tremendous national resources.
Over the last 10 years, BMSS has been consistently named as one of the top places to work by the Birmingham Business Journal and has kept true to its founders’ vision of adding value for clients by fostering an environment of personal and professional fulfillment.
