    Hi, my name is Austin Bowling. I am a born and raised Louisville native that went to South Oldham High School. After high school, I chose to attend Western Kentucky University where I completed my bachelor’s degree in 2015.

    Throughout my career, I have always sought jobs that were focused on building relationships and helping customers. This is my first time joining the car business, but Bachman Auto Group’s reputation for treating customers like family is really what helped me decide that this was the place for me.

    The next time you are in the market for a car, make sure to stop by and let me show you what the Bachman experience is all about. I look forward to meeting you soon!

    My name is Byron Sims. I was born and raised in Kentucky for much of my early life. After my freshman year at Trinity High School, my family was transferred to Florida where I completed high school and then earned a degree in Business from Florida State University.

    For a complete change in scenery after college, I moved to Colorado where I worked for Young Life and Focus On The Family ministries and where I met my wonderful wife of 20+ years! I returned to Kentucky roots in 2001, taking a job in sales for a home electronics custom installation company, where I worked for more than 13 years.

    I joined the Bachman sales staff in March 2015 as I wanted to try mixing my lifelong interest in cars with my love of meeting the needs of others through great customer service. In my off time I enjoy spending time with my family, martial arts, muscle cars and just being outside!

    I truly look forward to helping you find your next automobile and making your purchase and ownership experience a great one!

I have a BS degree in Business Administration from the University of Tennessee. I worked in the food business for 20 years; my last position was as a Regional Sales Manager for Stokley USA.

I have held several positions in the automotive business including sales, sales management and F&I Manager. I am married and have two daughters and three grandchildren. I have been very active in my community where I was a member of the Jeffersontown Optimist Club, serving as President in 1989-90 and was active in the Jeffersontown Youth Basketball League for 20 years.

I am an avid football and basketball fan and enjoy fishing when I can get away, especially trout fishing. I enjoy selling because I get to meet so many different people. I have been at Bachman Volkswagen for a year and a half and came here because I knew Jeff Pence and David Wheeler from previous jobs. I love to talk and tell stories, sometimes more than once, and love for my customers to share their backgrounds with me. I find people love to tell you about themselves.

    I first started in the car industry four years ago. I retired from a tobacco company after 29 years primarily in sales. Started my own business right after retirement that lasted for a few years and thus bringing me to the car business. Not really looking for much to do but my sales juices kicked in and I found to like the car industry.

    I graduated from Lincoln High School in Vincennes, Indiana and spent two years of college at Vincennes University where I studied in business. Should get my money back. I moved to Louisville 25 years ago from Richmond, Virginia bringing me closer to family. I raised two wonderful children that have given me grandchildren that I truly adore. My father died eight years ago and my mother is still living. She resides in Vincennes, Indiana with my brother and sister and several nephews and nieces.
    At one time I was volunteering with a Youth Center for abused children in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. I would like to spend more time with abused children as it was always a very rewarding experience. I really enjoy playing golf and wish I could play more. I have a Beagle who keeps me in check by always giving me his love and affection. Thank God he can’t talk! My love for church still lingers within and I wish I could give back what I have missed by not being there every Sunday. God has given me several chances and I feel I owe him dearly.

    I can’t say enough about the time I have spent with the Bachman family. I say family because that is what it is here, a family. That is what brought me here in the first place.

    My fondest memory working at Bachman is when a few of us went to lunch and took a car off the lot, which we aren’t supposed to do. I knew this was wrong but I was hypnotized in the moment. As we came out of the restaurant, we noticed the car was gone. I soon realized, or thought I did, that someone had hidden the car close by. As we kept looking and not finding anything like the Tahoe we took, I knew we were screwed. So now it was time to make a decision as to who had make the call that we no longer had the vehicle we came in and that someone was going to have to pick us up. It seems that a particular individual found out that we had taken the car and had someone come and get it. They left us out to dry for quite some time. Knowing we had been bad boys I made a decision that I would not be hypnotized ever again. That is my story and I am sticking to it.

    Les Hudson

    Les Hudson began his sales career with Bachman Auto Group on October 1, 2002. Based out of the Volkswagen dealership, where he is the senior salesperson, Les can assist you with your automotive needs on any of the Bachman Auto Group lots. Originally from Mattoon, Illinois, Les has an undergraduate degree in Recreation Administration with a minor in Business Administration from Eastern Illinois University. He went on to do Masters work at Southern Baptist Seminary in Christian Education and Youth Ministry and obtained a Masters Degree in Ministry from Kentucky Christian College. Les, along with his wife Michelle, served for 16 years in ministry. He has served in the areas of Youth, Worship, Administration, and Christian Education. The ministry took them to Greenville and Vincennes, Indiana, Concord, North Carolina, and Richmond Hill, Georgia, where they helped start a new church, before changing directions and accepted a position in church camp ministry at Earlham, Iowa, where Les served as Executive Director. Ironically, Michelle and Les met while camp counselors together at a Christian camp. The senior high youth voted them the couple of the week even though they had just met and had not even vocally expressed an interest in each other.

    The “glow” must have been there because shortly after that they were dating and on July, 9, 1988 they were married. On February 28, 1992 they were blessed with their first son, Brandon and they were blessed again with another son, Cameron, on January 30, 1995. The Hudsons moved to Louisville, Kentucky in February 2001 in order to attend Southeast Christian Church where they are members. Les took a position as Director of Operations for a local advertising company and served there faithfully until the economy resulted in downsizing and eventually the sale of the company. The family is heavily involved in several ministry programs at Southeast Christian which fulfills their spare time. Brandon and Cameron both graduated from Eastern High School in Louisville. They love to spend time together as a family and especially love traveling. One of their favorite destinations is the east coast to enjoy the ocean. Les is committed to assisting his customers in finding the right car and making it affordable for them to own. He would welcome the opportunity to assist you with your next purchase.

    Hi! My name is Ryan Hutchings I was born and raised here in Louisville, Kentucky. I grew up in Crestwood where I attended and graduated South Oldham High School. After graduating I went to Jefferson Technical and Community College for a brief stint but decided I’d rather pursue my passion with a long term career in the Automotive Industry.

    In May of 2009 at the young age of 15, my journey began in the Bachman family as a lot technician. After tending to the different car lots my experience grew with computer scanning, clean up, Chevrolet technician, photographer, Volkswagen service consultant, then last but not least, a salesman. I use my years of experience and knowledge of automobiles to find my customer a car that suits their individual needs.

    I look forward to meeting new costumers and working with returning costumers every day! See you soon!

    Hello, I’m Tom Kennedy. After 30 years in broadcasting, I shifted gears and have taken my talents to Bachman Auto Group at Bachman Volkswagen.

    After creating the largest non-traditional revenue department at WHAS/WAMZ here in Louisville, I next worked on-air at 88.5WJIE before becoming the Promotion, Marketing & Sales Manager there. In my free time, I operate my own internet radio station which plays classic pop, country, and contemporary Christian hits.

    Creativity in my radio career allows me that same excitement to put you in a new Volkswagen Jetta, Passat, Beetle or a quality used vehicle. You now have a friend in the car business where you can be assured of a great ride every time.

    I look forward to working with you soon at Bachman Volkswagen!
