RPS Solutions And Its Founder Kevin Seawright Are Changing Baltimore For The Better
The city of Baltimore has long wanted to increase the rate of home ownership within the city. The current percentage of people who own a home in the city stands at about 48%. Kevin Seawright and his company RPS Solutions seek to change that reality, and bring up the rate to the state average.
Joint Venture to Better the City
The joint venture was founded in 2015, with the goal of increasing the amount of homeowners in Baltimore and its surrounding suburbs. The company constructs and renovates affordable homes, and assists potential homebuyers by managing their assets and helping them connect with mortgage lenders.
The company has been met with success and has been able to add homeowners to a variety of Baltimore neighborhoods. Recently, they have started to fill the Belvedere Square neighborhood and their success has been documented by a variety of news outlets. T
By helping people become homeowners, the company hopes to rejuvenate the city and its surrounding suburbs by repopulating old areas and helping people build up their wealth. This new wealth will in turn help grow the communities they live in and to a greater extent Baltimore itself.
Seawright is a financial professional that works mainly in the public sector to improve communities across the East Coast. He gained his Masters of Accounting from Almeda University and has also participated in leadership programs hosted by the Notre Dame Mendoza School of Business.
He has been heavily involved in local government and has been assigned to many roles throughout his 13-year career. Seawright has saved more than $100,00 for the local city government through the development of a new accounting system, and has held the positions of Chief Financial and Facilities Officer for the Department of Recreation and Parts and also as the Deputy Chief Operating Officer in the education sector.
Other than working on RPS Solutions, Seawright is currently part of the Newark Economic Development Corporation, an organization that focuses on retaining, attracting, and growing local businesses. On his free time, he is a coach for a local youth team and is a member of the American Society for Public Administration.
