Babs Bender
Babs Bender Senior Client Service Associate

Babs is usually the first person our clients interact with when they call or visit our office in Selma. It’s like seeing an old friend again, picking up the conversation where they last left off and talking about everything under the sun. She is always sure to send out birthday greetings for their special day.

In addition to making our clients feel right at home, Babs helps with account maintenance, deposits and other money movements. She wants our clients to feel confident that we are providing all the support and service they need and handling their accounts in the most attentive and accurate manner.

Prior to joining Raymond James in 2015, Babs was a human resources specialist for 26 years. She was also co-owner and manager of the Selma City Marina. She is a graduate of George C. Wallace College, where she earned associate degrees in accounting and stenography.

Babs lives in her hometown of Selma, Alabama, with her husband, Lee, a retired Norfolk Southern engineer. They have two children and three grandchildren. In her free time, Babs enjoys gardening, spending time with her family and friends on the Alabama River boating and kayaking or taking in the beautiful scenery while having a porch chat.

She has served as an Alabama Scenic River Trail host since 2014 and is past secretary of the Selma Boating Association. She has also been a member of the YMCA’s Tri-Hi-Y Club for four years.
