The Team

Ed Marsden
Founder & Director

Ed is one of the founders of Eva Applications, and is also managing director of Verita, a specialist investigations consultancy. He is a healthcare professional by background, and spent the first half of his career working on the frontline in the NHS. Ed has carried out numerous complex investigations in healthcare over the last twenty years, heading up many serious incidents involving patient harm. He oversaw the 40 or so investigations that the NHS had to undertake on behalf of the Secretary of State for Health into allegations by victims of Jimmy Savile. Ed believes that the intelligent use of data and technology can play a significant role in reducing avoidable harm in both the private and public healthcare sectors

Chris Brougham
Lead Investigator

Chris is also a Director at Verita and is one of their most experienced investigators, having conducted some of its most high-profile investigations and reviews. As head of training, Chris has developed training courses for the systematic investigation of serious incidents and complex complaints. She has delivered these courses across a range of organisations and sectors, receiving consistently excellent feedback. Chris’ knowledge and experience were an integral part of Eva’s design.

Peter Killwick
Founder & Director

Peter is also Company Director for Verita. Since joining them in 2012, Peter has had a particular focus on the development and evolution of our diagnostic tools – including the Eva investigation application, Organisational Resilience Assessment and Complaints diagnostic – as well as undertaking numerous investigations in both public and private healthcare. In his role as a Verita board director, he oversees relationships with a number of key clients and manages the financial control of the organisation.
Joel Markham Director
Joel spent ten years working in senior roles at Lloyds Bank, Babcock International Group and Companies House. He observed that everyone had the same view that projects were always late and painful, and he was determined to change this perception. Since starting a Project Portfolio Management business in 2012 and refining it to become iCoTech Services in 2018, Joel now leads a innovative, agile team committed to delivering at pace and within a competitive budget.
