Two more Octopus Property employees leave for Octane Capital

Octane Capital
Two more Octopus Property employees have left the lender to join Octane Capital.

Graham Macaulay will be joining as senior credit manager and Liam Lawlor will be senior business development manager.

Start dates for both have yet to be confirmed.

Octane was set up in May by the founder of Octopus, Jonathan Samuels, and former colleagues Mark Posniak and Matt Smith.

The firm has also hired former Octopus finance manager Robert Graham

Octane Capital focuses on complex and larger loans that brokers might struggle to place.

Octane managing director Mark Posniak says: “In their respective fields, Graham and Liam have two of the sharpest minds in the industry, and sharp minds need to be challenged.

“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.”
