Octane Capital has revealed that Samantha Emery and Bethan Jones have been appointed as business development managers (BDMs).
Emery joins from Together, where she was a regional development director, and has previously worked at Barclays in a number of roles.
Jones (pictured) joins from Habito where she was a relationship manager.
Emery will have a dual remit, focusing on the South East but also the professional services sector, where she has extensive contacts with accountants and solicitors.
Meanwhile, Jones will focus on brokers in Wales and the South West along with Octane’s new buy-to-let proposition.
Both will report into managing director, Mark Posniak.
Posniak said: “To have someone with Samantha’s experience, knowledge and contacts join our sales team is a real boost for everyone at Octane. Hiring her was a little bit unusual in that she has yet to meet most of the team face-to-face as she started during lockdown. But she’s already fitted in, albeit digitally for now, and we can’t wait to properly welcome her onboard once our office is back open.
“We’re also hoping that Bethan’s experience as a mortgage broker will stand her in good stead with our introducers as she will have walked many miles in their shoes and knows what it takes to get deals over the line.”
