On May 19, 2015, Kevin Seawright enthusiastically joined the Newark, New Jersey Community Economic Development Corporation where he’s had an “exponential effect” on small business and real estate development in Newark, New Jersey.

He believes his positive attitude, his ability to adapt, and his creative solutions to challenging problems are why he is successful. He focuses on small and minority business development creating an entrepreneurial economy where Newark residents thrive, finding employment opportunities, and a better quality of life.

He remembers his first job and how it changed his life. He was only 12 years old in inner-city Philadelphia learning financial stewardship in a youth program. His parents were his role models as he went forth to improve the lives of children and adults in Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Newark, New Jersey. His parents raised him to be conscientious. He believes a college education is the route to freedom to lead a quality productive life.

An article with WorldClassMagazines revealed that he really considers his supportive family, his parents, cousins, aunts, and uncles a reason why he is successful. His daughter is the closed, most important relationship in his life, and his accomplishments are reflected in her life.

He loves watching his 12-year-old daughter Tia’s basketball and softball games. His favorite sport will always be basketball. He grew up in Philadelphia with the 76ers.

Seawright is making loans to small and mid-sized businesses, construction projects and real estate developments in Newark’s 20 eclectic communities. Together with Newark’s Department of Economic and Housing Development, Seawright’s Newark Community Economic Development Corporation generates and sustains jobs and income for the peace and prosperity of Newark’s families. He believes a measure of their success is their contribution to their community.
