Octane Capital lures more from Octopus

New lender recruits another two senior sorts from Octopus Property

“Productless” lender Octane Capital, founded earlier this year by a trio of top table types from Octopus Property (then Dragonfly Finance), has recruited another two people from the same place.

Graham Macaulay and Liam Lawlor will be joining Octane from Octopus, as Senior Credit Manager and Senior Business Development Manager respectively. Start dates for both have yet to be confirmed. The new hires take the number of Octopus alumni at Octane to six.

The new firm “has chosen to focus on complex and larger loans that brokers struggle to place.”

Mark Posniak, Managing Director, Octane Capital: “In their respective fields, Graham and Liam have two of the sharpest minds in the industry, and sharp minds need to be challenged. Both immediately bought into Octane’s risk-based pricing model and the bespoke, complex loans that we have set out to offer. Our goal is to create a lender where the most experienced people in specialist finance can test themselves each day, do so in a flat and fun environment, and work alongside brokers as partners.”
