Octane Capital has recruited George Lyall as internal business development associate.
He will report into Oli Greenspan, Octane Capital’s head of internal sales.
Lyall (pictured) joins Octane Capital from Australian residential lender Millbrook Mortgage Management, where he worked closely with clients and brokers on complex and non-conforming loans.
Prior to that he worked as a commercial credit analyst at La Trobe Financial Services, where he assessed and reviewed loan applications from mortgage brokers around Australia.
Lyall’s role at Octane Capital will be to work closely alongside brokers and the firm’s business development managers to ensure the process of taking a loan from initial enquiry to completion is quick and seamless.
He said: “Octane Capital has already shown itself to be a major force in specialist lending and joining such an experienced team was too good an opportunity to pass up. I’m already loving my role of dealing with brokers and BDMs out on the road, a growing number of whom are waking up to the many benefits of product-less lending.
“Octane’s flexibility means it does things a little bit differently, and it’s exciting to be part of this growing and ambitious team.”
Mark Posniak, managing director of Octane Capital, added: “The move from Australia will be a big change for George, but he’s already settled in and there’s no doubt that his expertise and enthusiasm will see him thrive in his new role.
“George joins us with years of experience liaising with BDMs and brokers and this will stand him in great stead as he gets to grips with the processes and structures at Octane.”
