Accurascale Welcomes Graham Hubbard on Board as Business Development Consultant.
We are delighted to announce the latest addition to our growing team; industry legend Graham Hubbard as Business Development Consultant.
Mr. Hubbard was the long serving Managing Director of Bachmann Europe Ltd., with the company formed in 1989 and becoming one of the biggest names in the model railway scene under his stewardship throughout the 1990s and 2000s. During that time the Graham Farish and Lilliput brands came under Graham's brief too, forging ahead in the British N gauge and continental markets as well as OO gauge with the branchline range.
Before his time as Bachmann MD, Mr. Hubbard ran the very successful Eastern Models, who served as importers and distributors of models such as the Bachmann US range for over 15 years.
Graham stepped down from his role as Bachmann Europe Chief 2015 after 26 very successful years in the hot seat, and since then has concentrated on his railway perseveration work with the Heavy Traction Group, among others. However, he has been itching to get back into the model railway industry and is keen to help us progress as a business with his wisdom and industry experience.
Speaking about his position with us, Mr. Hubbard outlined his excitement about his new role; “Accurascale entered the market a couple of years ago but have already made a tremendous splash with many excellent models already delivered and lots more exciting projects underway. I’m delighted to be joining the Accurascale team to assist them with their future development and giving them the benefit of my experience and background. I cannot wait to get started!”
Commenting on Accurascale's latest team member, MD Stephen McCarron stated: "We are thrilled to have such a respected, well versed and knowledgeable colleague join our growing team. That Graham can support Accurascale is, we feel, a huge endorsement of our approach and plans!"
Graham now joins Paul Isles, formerly of Hornby, and Gareth Bayer, previously of Rapido Trains Inc. in our team, all bringing a tremendous wealth of experience to guide us on our goal to becoming a significant industry player delivering accurate and high quality railway models at a reasonable price. We look forward to seeing the fruits of their work in the coming months and years and we are sure you will be too!
