Judson Motes

  • Staff Accountant
  • Birmingham

Judson started his work in the accounting profession in 2018, when he interned with BMSS. He joined BMSS as a staff accountant in our Riverchase office in 2019. Before coming to the firm, Judson was a staff accountant at Southern Foodservice Management, where he oversaw accounts receivable and the monthly billing process, prepared and filed state and local sales tax returns for all company locations across the country and prepared and reviewed monthly financial statements. He decided to go into the accounting industry after being inspired by the professor of his first accounting class.

With a personal service philosophy of “Always go the extra mile,” Judson is clearly an ambitious and hardworking individual; however, others can’t help but notice and appreciate his laid-back attitude. It’s Judson’s earnestness and genuine personality that make him such an enjoyable person to work with. His definition of success as the measure of effort he puts into a task and not necessarily the outcome of the task is derived from this quote by John Wooden: “Success is peace of mind, which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming.”

Judson lives in Pelham, Alabama, not far from his hometown of Montevallo, where he grew up as the fourth of five children and the only son. He loves the Birmingham area because it offers the amenities of a large city, yet it’s a place where he still runs into people he knows. When not working, Judson loves being active, playing golf, spending time at the lake and being with friends. Judson and his fiancé, Loryn, will be married in October and own an adopted pup named Rosie.
