Kevin Seawright is a certified public accountant and former Vice President of the Newark Community Economic Development Corporation who is currently Managing Partner of RPS Solutions Inc. in Baltimore. RPS Solutions is connected to both city housing authorities and real estate agencies that seek to lower housing costs for buyers and renters and also help people get past all the red tape for bank mortgages. Seawright has long thought that some of Baltimore’s suburban neighborhoods have lacked diversity, and he believes RPS will allow minorities and lower income home buyers to come into those communities. It’s been tough for many people to buy new homes including one young man who Seawright used to work with at a Baltimore community center who now works at the housing department. But thanks to the program at RPS Solutions, that young man is happy to announce he will own his first home. Follow Kevin Seawright on Twitter.
Kevin Seawright has quite a long resume of financial work ranging from managing the books for some of Baltimore’s key public departments including its public parks and schools. His education comes from some of the nation’s top business institutions including the Notre Dame Mendoza Business School where he completed a post-grad Executive Leadership course not long ago. Baltimore reported a budget surplus in one year that Seawright helped adjust their allocations, and he also brought a new way to monitor the budgets and performance for the city’s operations through CitiStat, a big analytics software system.

On top of being involved in the Baltimore finance committee, Seawright also became a member of the National Association of Black Accountants and American Society for Public Administration, and he was also campaign director for mayoral candidate Otis T. Rolley in the 2011 Baltimore mayoral election. Rolley did not win the election, and for several years after that race Seawright left Baltimore. He started focusing on other urban business development initiatives as the Vice President of Finance and Human Capital at Tito Contractors in Washington D.C., and that same position at Newark’s Community Economic Development Corporation, the last company he served at prior to starting RPS Solutions. But he’s also been active at the Babe Ruth Museum’s advisory board, and he’s the father of a young girl named Tia who he’s said he enjoys watching play softball.
