The Facebook page for Kevin Seawright is simple and uncluttered. Primarily it lists his work and educational history. At Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business, he took courses in Executive Leadership, Government, and Non-Profits. The only photos are of Mr. Seawright and a prominent image of Newark New Jersey.
The photo of Newark is a nod to Kevin’s position with the Newark Community Economic Development Corporation (NCEDC). He is their Executive VP and CFO.
The mission of the NCEDC is to promote the economic future of Newark. The projects that the NCEDC sponsors are designed to create employment by making the city attractive to new businesses while aiding the growth of small businesses. Follow Kevin Seawright on Twitter.
The Newark Community Economic Development Corporation’s 2015 decision to ask Kevin Seawright to come aboard was based on his work history. During his time in the workforce, Kevin has gained experience in diverse capital management operations and accounting.
Prior to moving to Newark Kevin Seawright held multiple positions with the Baltimore, Maryland’s city government. An accounting system that he put in place while serving as the Managing Fiscal Officer put an extra $100 thousand in the coffers of Baltimore’s Commission on Aging and Retirement. Kevin was also the architect of that accounting system.
Next, Kevin was made the Housing Authority of Baltimore City’s Payroll Director. Other appointments he received from the City of Baltimore include Homeless Services Division Finance Director and the Department of Recreation and Park’s Chief Financial and Facilities Officer.
His success in the previous appointments led to Kevin Seawright being tapped to serve as Deputy Chief Operating Officer for the educational system in Baltimore.
The last bit of knowledge that made Kevin a good fit for the NCEDC, an understanding of how to develop small businesses and real estate was acquired during his tenure with Washington DC-based Tito Contractors Inc. TCI specializes in construction management and general contracting. Kevin hired on with TCI as their Director for Finance and Human Capital.
