A Word from Our 2023 GOLD Level Sponsors . . .


Argent Trust Company

Argent Trust Company is the flagship entity of Argent Financial Group, a leading, independent, fiduciary wealth management firm with offices across the Southeastern U.S.  Responsible for more than $43.5 billion in client assets, Argent provides individuals, families, businesses, and institutions with a broad range of wealth management services, including trust and estate planning, investment management, retirement plan consulting and administration, ESOPs, funeral and cemetery trusts, charitable organization administration, oil and gas (mineral) management and other unique financial services. 

Argent’s Birmingham office is conveniently located on Lakeshore Parkway and houses a team of Argent Trust wealth advisors, as well as our in-house trust operations group, which supports the trust teams across Argent’s 12-state corporate footprint.

The office opened in 2016 under the leadership of Ken Alderman and is now led by market president Collins Compere. The trust team–which includes four past recipients of the Alabama Bankers Association Wayne F. Lambert Trust Professional of the Year Award–serves clients with fiduciary wealth management, trust, and estate administration needs.



We have several companies under the BMSS umbrella. The primary company is a full-service certified public accounting and business advisory firm.  We are an entrepreneurial team who provides exceptional client experience through our Local Presence, National Knowledge and Global Reach. We create peace of mind.  What does this mean for you?

We are entrepreneurs and will bring our entrepreneurial mindset to each and every client.
We strive to create an experience for you that surpasses any other.
We have the bandwidth to help clients around the world, but we are also there with you locally, living and working in your community.
We worry about the things that keep you up at night so you don’t have to.

Under the BMSS umbrella, a fee-only financial planning and investment advisory firm, BMSS Wesson, was founded.  As the BMSS CPA clients have moved forward with building successful businesses, accumulating wealth, and looking to transition their business and wealth to the next generation it made sense to form a business to meet their clients’ needs in these new stages of their lives in order to continue to provide them with the same high-quality service and honest advice delivered by the CPA firm.
