Hugh Johnson

Hugh is one of the founders of Accounting Insights and he has been working full-time with Power BI since before its launch.

Hugh’s focus has been exclusively on building Power BI reports from accounting data; profit & loss, balance sheet, sales, receivables, liquidity, actual vs budget variance and stock reporting.  In this time, he has learned many techniques to achieve great financial reports and believes that the best person to build your financial reports is someone with accounting knowledge rather than a specialist data scientist.  It is easier to train an accountant in Power BI than to train a data scientist in accounting.
