123 Millennium - A Marquis Who’s Who Magazine FINANCE AND INSURANCE Initially an athlete during his collegiate studies, Kody Adams was expected to declare a major outside of his athletic duties. Realizing that he had an aptitude for numbers and problem solving, he declared his major in accounting. In 2016, he graduated from Georgia Southern University with a Bachelor of Arts in accounting and began his career as an audit intern with Habif, Arogeti & Lynne LLP.

For the following two years, he was a senior consultant for EY prior to commencing his current role as a senior implementation consultant for BlackLine. Mr. Adams holds numerous certifications, including a BlackLine certified implementation consultant in accounts, reconciliations and task management, intercompany hub, journals and transaction matching. Although his career has been filled with highlights, he is especially proud of graduating with his undergraduate degree in accounting, as if it were not for his college degree, he would not have been able to succeed in the accounting world. He attributes his immense success to his ability to be a role model for other aspiring accountants and consultants, as well as his continuous drive to be the best person and worker he can be. Civically engaged as well, Mr. Adams contributes to the Ronald McDonald House and Habitat for Humanity. He was named Consulting Accounting Professional of the Year by Strathmore Who’s Who in 2021 as a testament to his success in the industry.
