Many people across Baltimore may have been excited this last year when Kevin Seawright announced on the Larry Young radio show that new housing opportunities were coming to the city through his new company, RPS Solutions Inc. But probably nobody was as blessed to have the opportunity as Jerrel Brown, a young man that Seawright had once taken under his wings. Brown works for Baltimore’s housing authority, a job that has its perks but still not a salary that allows him to buy a home.

Not long ago Seawright contacted him about buying a renovated home through RPS’s home ownership program, a program that provides financing and lower upfront costs to buyers. Since then Brown has been able to provide his family with a quality house.
Kevin Seawright has been mostly focused on real estate investing and development as Managing Partner of this new company, but his career transcends many years in public accounting and public fund management. A graduate of Notre Dame’s Mendoza School of Business, Seawright holds certifications in accounting and executive leadership.
He served in Baltimore’s public services departments including the Parks & Recreation, public schools and mayoral administrative tasks. He brought CitiStat to Baltimore, a program that uses data analytics to assess department performance and allow the mayoral office to respond to the areas of need. But Seawright also has served in the private sector.
Seawright joined Tito Contactors in 2011, a commercial contracting service in Washington D.C. that includes an array of construction and remodeling services tailored to commercial clients. Seawright allowed the company to maximize its operations through implementing new budgeting strategies.
In the midst of a rebuilding boom in Newark, Seawright was chosen to come be the Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the city’s Community Economic Development Corporation.
Kevin Seawright led several new rebuilding programs while there, but in 2016 decided to focus on his new goals at RPS Solutions. Seawright has mentored other young men besides Brown and has coached youth sports throughout his career.
He’s also been a leader at the Babe Ruth Museum in his spare time, and a father to a young girl named Tia.
