When World Class Magazine interviewed Kevin Seawright, the CFO and VP of the Newark Community Economic Development Corporation (Newark CEDC), they were interested in learning about his positive outlook concerning his career.
Utilizing his previous experience in finance and construction in both the public and private sectors, Seawright’s current focus is on helping Newark to grow by granting loans to entrepreneurs and creating a summer employment program for the city’s youth. However, Seawright says he is willing to adapt to Newark’s specific needs and find innovative solutions to foster economic development in the city.
According to Crunchbase, Kevin Seawright’s Facebook Page says that he is from Newark and currently living in the city and his profile picture is of Newark’s skyline. As a proud Newark resident, Seawright has an incentive to create positive change in the city.
Kevin Seawright also told World Class Magazine that his upbringing resulted in his career choices as his parents encouraged him to work to improve the lives of inner-city residents. He considers himself successful because his work affects Newark residents in a meaningful way.
Founding RPS Solutions is Seawright’s way of increasing home ownership rates in Baltimore by renovating houses, creating affordable homes that are ideal for first-time buyers. RPS Solutions already has a portfolio of real estate in Baltimore’s Belvedere Square, Parkville and West Edmondale, with properties in Carney and Cedonia coming soon.
While Kevin Seawright keeps very busy, he finds time to watch his daughter play softball and basketball and occasionally catch a Redskins or a Philadelphia 76ers game.
