Micro Focus History
Few people were more colourful than founder and original CEO, Brian Reynolds. Brian opened the doors (of a lean-to office alongside his house in Notting Hill, England) to the inaugural incarnation of Micro Focus on 12 August 1976, to deliver what were the first ever business-ready, off-mainframe COBOL compilers and run-time technologies to be based purely on COBOL. Later that year, co-founders Paul O’Grady (Managing Director) and Steward Lang (Technical Director) joined him and they began building the foundations that have made Micro Focus what it is today. None of them could have contemplated the journey that lay ahead of Micro Focus, in all its many manifestations.
