The meaning behind our name
Stacks Image 88
In nature, an anabranch is an offshoot of a river. It abandons the endless twists and turns of a main river to find a better path to the same place.

Our name embodies what we strive to do every day: Give you a better path to flood risk information, so you can make smarter decisions without hoops or headaches.

Anabranch Flood is an Executive Member of the National Flood Determination Association and is a listed flood determination provider with FEMA.
Reid Rechel, CFM, Founder and President
An entrepreneur at heart, Reid loves challenges and is always asking, “How can we do things better?”

Reid started as a flood risk analyst for a major financial services company. In 2008, he founded Anabranch Flood to give lenders and insurance companies a different approach to flood risk research. Under Reid’s vision, we continue to find new ways to help our clients better understand their data, make confident decisions and skip the hassles.

Reid is an armed forces veteran and has served in the Air National Guard since age 18. He currently serves as an aerospace propulsion technician in the Colorado Air National Guard.

When Reid isn’t serving our clients or country, you’ll find him in the Rocky Mountains — climbing, skiing and mountain biking.
