We’re a diverse bunch of people, dedicated to finding great solutions for our clients.

We believe the team is stronger than the individual.

Ingolv T. Urnes

Executive Chairman

There are two aspects of psKINETIC of which I am incredibly proud; our intelligent process automation solutions and our awesome people. We love innovation, but what is most important for the team here are successful implementations that deliver real value – we call it return on automation. Our customers are living through the most exciting of times; technology provides new opportunities at a pace never seen before. We at psKINETIC are incredibly fortunate to be working with great organisations as both customers and partners to leverage new technologies and, learning together to solve new problems.

I’m a Norwegian who studied in Switzerland and then went on to work at Goldman Sachs in London, Frankfurt and New York. After a decade in finance, I became interested in how software was changing the world. In 2002, I started my first health tech business, Active Health Partners. My experience here helped me refine the two principles on which I went on to found this company in 2008; we want to be known for pushing process automation and for cultivating an exciting environment in which our awesome people can grow, learn and achieve great things.

Deepak Chandarana

Managing Director

I’ve been at the company since 2013 as Operations Director; it has been exciting to be part of a fast growing business delivering world class software solutions to our customers. Every day I enjoy being part of a creative team that is focused on working with our customers to design and deliver solutions that give them tangible value. Another important part of my job, and one of which I am very passionate, is guiding the professional development of the team, giving them opportunities to enhance and extend the breadth and depth of their skills. Prior to psKINETIC, I worked at Accenture and Ernst & Young shaping and delivering large scale transformations for FTSE 100 companies across industries such as healthcare, telecoms and utilities. I’ve worked in 20 countries with roles in project management, solution architecture, application development and service management for both packaged and customised solutions. I graduated from King’s College London with a Masters in Computer Science.

Helen Wright

Finance Director

I’m Helen and I look after finance at psKINETIC. I came to psKINETIC from a background in financial control and management consultancy. That in turn now seems a long way from my languages degree at Cambridge. psKINETIC has ambitious growth plans and we therefore have an extensive and full finance agenda which keeps my team busy and very much at the sharp end of the business. It’s an impressive, challenging and enjoyable environment in which to work where everyone has a total commitment and passion to design and build the best solutions for our clients. Outside the office? I’m a big fan of the water as an ex rower now keen sailor. I run when I can, but nowadays am equally happy on the sidelines, cheering on the kids.

Linda MacDonald

People Director

I’m Linda and I look after our people agenda here at psKINETIC. My role is all about making sure that we have the right capability in place to achieve our ambitious growth plans. That means making sure that we hire the best people to join our business and then providing them with the right development and coaching so that we can really accelerate their learning.

Prior to joining psKINETIC, I worked in a number of different senior HR roles in retail, FMCG, banking and private equity. I joined psKINETIC because my professional passion is all about helping people to achieve their full potential and that’s something that there is a real commitment to here. psKINETIC people are exceptionally talented and committed – we have super high expectations of our people but it’s also a supportive and fun place to work.

Outside of work, I love to run so I am usually trying to fit in training for a 10k or a half marathon around the busy social lives of my young children! I also love reading – a throwback to my degree in English Literature from Durham.

Manjit Rana

Insurance Lead

I joined psKINETIC to grow their insurance division into one of the leading business automation and AI providers in Europe. I have a passion for innovation in the insurance industry, having spent 30 years in the sector from broker software houses to global technology firms eg CSC and Fujitsu Consulting. I have worked on projects across the insurance value chain from distribution to customer operations, claims and innovation and also travelled the world working on client projects and presenting at industry events. In 2010, I was recruited to help create the AXA Innovation Hub and then went onto launch Ingenin, an award-winning insurance innovation consultancy.

I am passionate about technology and the startup eco-system, having created my first business at the age of 19. I have been heavily involved in the InsurTech eco-system from the beginning and act as an advisor/mentor to various InsurTechs around the world. I am also an Entrepreneur in Residence at University of Nottingham.

Married and a proud father to two incredible “kids”, I grew up wanting to be a fighter pilot in the RAF but after graduating ended up in the “fast moving” world of insurance.. I can’t complain though as I still seem to spend a fair amount of time in the air …

Nick Foggin

Financial Services Lead

I joined psKINETIC to run and grow their consumer finance and fintech division, taking psKINETIC into being one of the leading providers of business automation, digital transformation and AI providers in Europe for FS. Previously I have taken other consultancies to Appian EMEA partners of the year on more than one occasion. I have been working in the tech sales space for well over 15 years now in MDM, CRM, Digital Transformation and other enterprise level technology spaces with Canon UK and Neopost. I was fortunate enough to be part of the senior team to help launch one of the first Digital Only Banks in Australia.
Prior to this I spent a number of years working in Wealth Management in central and eastern Europe as well as experience of setting up “Greenfield” sites and taking new technology to market. My career has allowed me to work and travel globally as well as live in a number of different countries over the years. One of my highlights was being asked to move to Monaco to help launch a new tech company, where I spent a couple of years looking out onto the main harbour from my office most days at some of the most impressive Super Yachts in the world, sometimes managing to get an invite to the parties onboard. Wasn’t a difficult choice to make the move.
I am a tech “Geek” at heart and am always trying to get my hands on the latest “toys” to play with. I grew up in a small town called Formby in Merseyside, and was fortunate enough to be brought up by parents who instilled a solid work ethic having watched them grow our family business which has been in existence since 1886 and still run by my sister to this day.

Fiona Sharratt

Professional Services Director

As Professional Services Director I am responsible for the success of all client and internal projects leading our pre sales, delivery, business consulting and engineering teams to deliver high quality solutions for our customers.

With 17 years industry experience working on large scale transformation projects across FS, Private Sector and Government, I’m passionate about how we can use the latest innovations in technology to help transform businesses and allow them to adapt and compete in an ever challenging world.

Originally from Ireland, I graduated with degrees in Electronic Engineering and Mathematics from Trinity College Dublin and then went on to work for Accenture in London and Newcastle. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my children and taking holidays in warmer climates!

Dave Bewick

Head of Engineering

My favourite thing about working for psKINETIC is the focus that’s put on the people and our development. The environment is also challenging and innovative, two things that I really love being a part of. I’m Dave. I run the Engineering team here and we’re a great bunch, I personally really enjoy thinking of new and quirky ideas to improve the team, whether it’s considering more efficient ways to collaborate within our design sessions or fun team bonding days out, the goal is always to improve.
I grew up in a small countryside village called Norton Lindsey, while I enjoyed the tranquillity from time to time I soon realised that a bustling, fast paced world was more for me. I eventually ended up in Waterloo. When I’m not in the office I like to think of myself as a bit of an adventurer, always finding new areas to explore with my flatmates. Either that or I’m geeking it up on my PlayStation.

Emma Dyduch

Head of Customer Support

I’ve worked in the healthcare industry for nearly ten years and have experience in both Operations and Account Management. I was first introduced to psKINETIC as a customer and had an excellent experience using the software and working with the psKINETIC team from the other side. Now working for psKINETIC, I’m committed to ensuring our customers continue to receive the same high-level of service and gain the maximum potential from our solutions. I’ve continuously studied part-time alongside my career and have a BA in Business Studies from The Open University. In my spare time I love playing roller derby – a full contact sport on roller skates. I spend a lot of time training, competing and hopefully winning , with my team Croydon Roller Derby.

Kieran McDaid

Head of Delivery

I am responsible for the success of delivering customer projects at psKINETIC. From understanding our customers’ businesses and defining their requirements, to ensuring the solution gets delivered with the quality expected.

I joined in 2018 after six years with a national provider in the further education sector. Initially in strategic research and analysis but I found my passion in technology, progressing to manage the business analysis team.

I graduated from the University of Bath with a degree in mathematics. Outside of work I spend my time cycling on the North and South Downs when I’m not running after my kids
