Bob Brockman is chairman and CEO of The Reynolds and Reynolds Company. He was named to those positions in October 2006 upon the acquisition of Reynolds and Reynolds by Universal Computer Services, Inc. (UCS). Prior to assuming his current position at Reynolds and Reynolds,
Mr. Brockman was chairman and CEO of Universal Computer Systems, Inc., and its affiliated companies. He founded the original UCS company in 1970.
During more than three decades of growth, UCS developed into a leading computer systems and software provider for automotive dealerships in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Europe. The company, headquartered in Houston, established a well-known reputation for software product development and innovation for the automotive industry.
Reynolds and Reynolds traces its founding to 1866 as a business forms printer first located in downtown Dayton, Ohio. In 1927, the company began producing standardized accounting forms for franchised Chevrolet dealers across the U.S. Since then, Reynolds has continued to serve the automotive industry from dealership software to business forms with unmatched depth of experience and a reputation for customer service and support.
Today, Mr. Brockman leads Reynolds and Reynolds with the same focus that marked his career leading UCS: providing dealership management software, services, and business forms that help automobile dealers operate more effectively and profitably.
Outside of business, Mr. Brockman's life-long interests in education and medicine have led to appointments as a trustee on the board of Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and trustee emeritus on the board of Rice University in Houston. He also is a former Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Centre College in Danville, Ky. Centre was ranked by Forbes magazine in 2010 as the number one college or university in the South.
