Financial Planning & Analysis Welcomes Rick Johnson
Johnson, a 2013 graduate of Liberty University, has a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration: Finance. He comes to UVA most recently from Sight & Sound Theatres in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where he wore multiple hats in his role as a staff accountant.
That position combined with his previous experiences in accounting and finance inspired him to further explore the analytical side of the profession.
“Numbers tell a story, and what I most enjoyed in my previous roles was using my analytical abilities to clearly and creatively convey that story to our stakeholders,” he said, adding that he saw a move into higher education as a great opportunity to develop that skill.
Johnson thought that UVA, with its overall reputation for focusing on excellence, would suit him well.
Johnson also looks forward to re-acquainting himself with the mountains and rivers of Virginia via time spent hiking and kayaking. In addition to the “outdoorsy stuff,” he also enjoys playing music and dabbling in songwriting.
