GILBERT, Ariz., Feb. 28, 2024 – Kinective, a leading provider of connectivity, workflow, and analytics software for the banking sector, today announced the addition of Charles “Chuck” Fagan, III and Patrick “Pat” Ghilani to its Board of Directors. The new board appointees join Kinective at a pivotal moment of growth and expansion for the company. 

Kinective’s CEO Stephen Baker said, “Kinective is well positioned as the industry’s go-to banking technology enabler to connect financial institutions with the technologies of their choice for digital transformation. We’re already the largest provider of banking connectivity in both customers and integrations, and we’ve tapped two deeply experienced executives to help unlock the potential of our company as it continues to scale. Added Baker, “Chuck brings a wealth of insights to guide how we can bring even greater value to the banking community and Pat is a seasoned expert in leading SAAS companies to building real customer value through strategic growth. I am thrilled they will be adding their considerable insight and talents to our already seasoned board.” 

Fagan is president and CEO of PSCU/Co-op Solutions, an integrated financial technology solutions provider and a Kinective reseller partner since 2023. He was named president and CEO of PSCU in April 2015 and was appointed to his current role following the company’s combination with Co-op Solutions in January 2024. Fagan’s tenure in financial services spans more than 35 years and his well-versed industry knowledge will be leveraged in scaling Kinective’s growth across product innovations, go-to-market plans, and acquisition strategies.  

Ghilani is the CEO of MRI Software, a global real estate enterprise software company, and has been with the company since 2006. Throughout his career, he has been instrumental in building highly scaled businesses, driving significant revenue growth and customer value within the technology arena. Under his leadership, MRI has significantly expanded its reach into new geographies, markets, and portfolios, resulting in 48 acquired businesses globally since 2015. His experience will be invaluable in guiding Kinective on a similar trajectory. 

Fagan said, “I am excited to join Kinective’s board and further support the organization’s goals to empower financial institutions with best-of-breed technology strategies that align with modern consumer needs. Kinective and PSCU/Co-op Solutions share a similar vision, with our previous partnership serving as an exciting step toward bringing freedom of technology choice and core modernization to our credit union clients. The market is ready for the type of transformation that Kinective helps deliver.”
