Kevin Seawright has long been looking for ways to bring affordable homes and promote diversity within the homebuyers market, and his target group has been first-time homebuyers. It’s never easy to come up with a solution for both buyers, sellers and banks, but with his new company RPS Solutions, Seawright has a brand new plan for the city. RPS Solutions looks at homes that can be renovated and resold at a more affordable rate than brand new homes while at the same time still having a location in a safe neighborhood.
The company even helped Jerrel Brown of Baltimore’s housing authority who once knew Seawright as a youth leader. Brown had been unable to buy a home for his family until RPS introduced him to the renovated homes market and offered him the opportunity to take out a mortgage.
Kevin Seawright has held several positions in public accounting over the years since receiving a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in the field from Alameda University. He started as a lower account manager for the Baltimore Parks and Recreation department where he maintained accounts receivable, payroll, tax oversight and other budgetary items.

From there he moved to the Baltimore Public School Systems where he maximized the budget directed at transportation and other basic operations. But his most notable accomplishment as a public accountant was when he had CitiStat implemented at the mayoral offices. With this software, the City of Baltimore was able to make various changes thanks to the analytics it performed on the important municipal departments.

From Baltimore Seawright moved to Washington D.C. where he managed the budget for a private contracting construction company, Tito Contractors. In 2014 Seawright was chosen by the leaders of the Newark Community Economic Development Corporation (CEDC) to be the Chief Financial Officer during a period that Newark’s city leaders began partnering with private construction companies to take on what they called the Newark renaissance.
Kevin Seawright kept his position for about a year prior to moving back to Baltimore and starting RPS Solutions. He also completed a certification course for Business Executive Leadership at the Notre Dame University Mendoza School of Business.
