Since 2001 entrepreneur Kevin Seawright has been working to improve the Baltimore, Maryland, community. He spent the first decade of this time working for the City of Baltimore in a number of managerial roles such as payroll director and chief financial officer. He left city government behind in March 2011 and joined Tito Contractors. His background in finance and management made him a perfect fit to work for this firm as their operations vice president. During his three years with this company, he streamlined their accounting department and reorganized their audit reporting procedures among his many successes at this firm.

After working for the Collington Episcopal Life Care Community and the Newark Community Economic Development Corp., he decided it was time to create his own venture in the housing industry. He launched RPS Solutions LLC in January 2015. He is the managing partner and chief operating officer of this company which was created in order to bring affordable housing to the city of Baltimore. His company buys properties, rehabilitates them, and then sells them to first-time homebuyers. Kevin Seawright says his goal is to increase the number of people who own homes in this city which he says is vital to building strong communities and increasing prosperity.
In order to meet the mission of his company, he partnered with the National Community Stabilization Trust. This is a program that helps low to moderate-income families afford homes. NCST works with banks sitting on foreclosed or abandoned properties. They help to transfer these homes to housing organizations like RPS Solutions. The two goals are to re-use existing properties and to increase the stability of neighborhoods. Kevin Seawright said that he was really excited to work with NCST as it would make Baltimore homes more affordable while also boosting the economic growth of this city.
