ChadSan in the Spotlight - Peter Johnson

1 - What attracted you to accounting?

I am someone that likes order and structure and I've always kept track of my finances with a spreadsheet. Accountancy felt like the right path to take as I wanted to pursue a prestigious qualification.

2 - What's your favourite part of your job?

The positive impact after giving advice to a client. I also enjoy creating bespoke Xero reports to show clients.

3 - Do you have any hobbies?

I am a keen beer brewer. I have a complete set-up at home and brew large batches of American IPA.

4 - Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

I would like to continue to offer advice to small businesses. In 5 years time I would have completed my ACA qualification so I would be able to make a bigger impact on start-ups.

5 - What would you have been if not an accountant?

I think something analytical. Like I said before I like order and structure so I think an analytical data role would suit me.

Bonus - Tell us an interesting fact about yourself

I used to play and compete in competitive Magic the Gathering tournaments!
