Kevin Seawright has held various positions as chief financial manager of city planning and residential development groups, and now he’s looking to bring down the cost of decent housing in Baltimore’s middle class neighborhoods. He’s the President of RPS Solutions, a company that works with both government and private contractors to diversify the city’s housing market by helping people become eligible for financing that had previously been ineligible. Seawright founded RPS Solutions back in 2015 upon returning to Baltimore and wanting to address its housing needs. RPS Solutions has been highly effective so far with one member of the city housing authority, Jerel Brown now being able to buy a renovated home. Read this article at njbiz.com
Kevin Seawright has spent most of his career in the Baltimore city administrative offices. He got his bachelor’s degree in accounting and is a Certified Public Accountant, and he started reorganizing and restructuring the finances in the parks and recreation department first. Seawright soon brought his financial expertise to more departments including the public schools where bus transportation and educational quality improved, and after his promotion to Deputy Chief Operating Officer of the city, there was noted surplus in the budget. He also brought analytical software to help the mayoral office respond to needy areas of the city and prioritize which services needed improvement.
When Otis T. Rolley announced he was running for mayor, Seawright joined KLS Political Solutions to become his campaign manager, though Rolley came up short to Democratic candidate Stephanie Rawlings Blake. Seawright stepped down from the public sector for a few years and managed private funds at Tito Contractors, a Washington D.C. construction company. A few years later, he was hired to become Chief Financial Officer of the Newark Community Economic Development Corporation where he oversaw certain commercial initiatives for downtown Newark and hosted fundraisers, though he only stayed on one year. Seawright also has also worked with non-profits including the directors board of the Babe Ruth Museum. Check: http://vizualize.me/kevinseawright#.WOJjraK1uM8
