Chief Executive Officer and Founder, Reliant Title and RynohLive
Richard M. (Dick) Reass is the president and founder of Reliant Title as well as Segin Software LLC. His passion for process improvement and innovative problem solving was the catalyst for developing RynohLive, once Reliant Title was well established. Dick describes himself as a re-engineered Naval Officer whose banker wife thought that starting a title agency would be a great way to keep him out of trouble once he had retired from the Navy. Little did she realize what would evolve!
After founding Reliant Title in 1998, Dick quickly realized that he "didn't know what he didn't know" and immersed himself in learning the title industry. A quick study, Dick's success in the title business allowed him to follow his passion for process improvement, using Reliant Title as his "Science Lab." Reliant and Dick were quickly recognized in 2000 and again in 2003 as the Realtors Association Affiliate of the Year. In 2007, he moved from Reliant Title into Segin Software full time. His vision of process improvement and systems integration led to the step-by-step development of RynohLive and other title system enhancements.
He is a graduate of the University of Texas and his Navy career was bookended by combat in Vietnam and Desert Storm. Commands at sea included serving as Commodore of the 16 ship multinational force during Desert Storm. Dick's final assignment was as director of Management Information Systems in Washington, D.C.
