    Sales and Leasing Consultant

    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!

    Sales and Leasing Consultant

    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!

    Sales and Leasing Consultant

    My name is Charlie Ogle. I am from Knoxville, TN and lived there until 1985 when the company I worked for transferred my family and I to Louisville. 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. Due to downsizing, I entered the automotive business in 1996 at Saturn of Louisville as a Sales Consultant. I then worked for Thrifty car Sales for 10 years before coming to Bachman Volkswagen in February 2010. 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 also coached in the Jeffersontown Little League, coaching girls softball for 6 years and served as the junior varsity coach at J-Town High School for 4 years.

    My wife of 37 years and I attend Southeast Christian Church. We enjoy spending time with our grandchildren. 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.

    After graduation, I enrolled at the University of Louisville, joined Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity, and served as a high officer as the ritual chair.

    In December 2017, I took the plunge into the automotive sales world and started working at Bachman Volkswagen. I initially started as a Lot Technician with hopes of moving up in the company, pushing to establish myself and showing that I am willing to work hard to achieve my goals.

    In April 2018, I was recognized for my dedication to excellence and promoted to Sales and Leasing Consultant. Being promoted was a huge achievement for me because it gives me the opportunity to grow my career in a wonderful, family run business. Even better, now I get to meet new people every day and help them take a big step in their lives in buying a vehicle.

    I look forward to meeting you and giving you the best sales experience you can have!

    Les Hudson

    Sales and Leasing Consultant

    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.

    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!
