Right now the city of Baltimore is undergoing a few changes and is looking to reshape its housing stock as well as making its nicer neighborhoods more affordable. That’s why former city Deputy Chief Operating Officer Kevin Seawright is now partnering with the city’s housing authority and non-profit groups to build affordable housing and assist lower income families through RPS Solutions. RPS Solutions includes funding private contractors and buying out renovated homes while also working with financial institutions and government programs to help get people approved for financing. Seawright has hoped to improve the quality of life in neighborhoods all across the city while also giving people new to the housing market a chance to buy a home.

Kevin Seawright has a long list of accounting and financial management accomplishments listed on his resume. Having spent a long time in Baltimore’s administrative departments and allocating city funds, managing municipal bonds, accounts receivable, payroll and financial analytics, Seawright has helped councilmen and even the mayor make informed decisions on city planning. He started out in his public accounting roles at the parks and recreation department, improved the efficiency of the city’s public schools and then as Deputy Chief Operating Officer brought CitiStat to use for resource allocation. Seawright had ambitions to serve as a direct aide to a potential mayor of Baltimore in candidate Otis T. Rolley, but when Rolley didn’t win the race he stepped down to the private sector.
Kevin Seawright was a chief financial manager for Tito Contractors in Washington DC for a few years and helped procure many commercial contracts and increased their portfolio holdings. A few years later he moved up to New Jersey when Rolley invited him to join him on Newark’s Community Economic Development Corporation committee and help pass initiatives to reform the city. Seawright helped with fundraising and passing new zoning initiatives to transform Newark’s neighborhoods up until 2015 when he returned to Baltimore. Seawright completed an executive leadership course at Notre Dame Mendoza School of Business not long ago and he’s also on the National Forum of Black Public Administrators among other organizations.
