Kevin Seawright has been excited about a new company he has started that’s working with Baltimore’s housing authority and urban development organizations. This company is RPS Solutions, a company focused on renovating various homes and making them inhabitable but also making them affordable for people who would normally be outside the homebuyer’s market.
Seawright said he’s always felt more people should have the opportunity to buy a house and he wants to do something that he can get both city officials and first time homebuyers behind. So far the rollout of RPS Solutions has looked promising and one of Seawright’s old acquaintances has been able to buy a home for the first time.
Kevin Seawright has a highly qualified background in civics and municipal management that has guided him into his current position. He attended Alameda University where he received his bachelor’s and master’s in accounting and finance. Read more: Newark economic development group names CFO
