How Kevin Seawright’s Financial Knowledge Has Been Key To Minority Communities

A lot of debate has been sparked by civic leaders, college professors, church leaders and other businessmen about how to bridge the gap between what most affluent consumers in the home buyers market can afford, and the opportunities that exist for lower income minorities.

So that’s why Kevin Seawright, a longtime certified public accountant and financial analyst has put together a new company known as RPS Solutions which has a program that helps minority consumers afford renovated homes in Baltimore.

This company works with city lawmakers and private contractors to promote diverse housing initiatives and help keep the local housing market stable. Several people that Seawright has known personally have already benefited from RPS Solutions.

Kevin Seawright began his career in public accounting after completing his education at Alameda University. The first department he managed public funds for was Baltimore’s Parks and Recreaction.

From there he became the Chief Financial Officer of the city’s public schools, and over the next few years carefully mapped out administrative costs and helped make the bus transportation system more effective.

One reason Baltimore’s mayor and city council were able to help the city flourish was that Seawright brought in CitiStat, an administrative and analytics software that could monitor financial reports and help the mayoral office make informed decisions on how to prioritize their planning.

Seawright started bringing his accounting experience into the private real estate market when he worked with Tito Contractors in Washington D.C, a residential and commercial building contractor company that he helped make savvy investments and maximize their revenue.

In 2013 he was asked to come work on the executive board of the Newark Community Economic Development Corporation, and while there he headed up several committees focused on incentivizing business owners to move to Newark.

He stayed on a little over 2 years before returning to Baltimore and founding RPS. Aside from the public administration councils he’s served with, Seawright has also worked with non-profits including the Babe Ruth Museum and several youth sports committees.
