Octane Capital has announced two new additions to its sales team.
Hattie Hall joins Octane as an internal BDM and will report into Oli Greenspan, head of marketing & internal sales. Hall (pictured) was previously at MT Finance, where she worked as a senior case manager.
Mark Stephenson joins Octane as an external BDM and will report into Liam Lawlor, sales director. Prior to Octane, Stephenson worked as a BDM at Castle Trust and, before that, Borro, where he was a senior account manager.
Stephenson said: “The opportunity to work with some of the most respected individuals in the specialist property finance market was one of the main reasons I was drawn to Octane. I am also excited by the product-less approach, which allows us to structure deals with unrivalled flexibility. I’m looking forward to helping Octane achieve a £1bn loan book in 2021 and doubtless much more beyond.”
Hall added: “The flexibility offered by Octane’s unique #3rdGen approach has been on my radar for some time and that definitely played a role in my decision to join. Getting to work alongside the likes of Mark, Jonathan and Matt, who are on the cutting edge of specialist lending, was another big reason why I made the move. I can’t wait to get stuck in and play my part in Octane’s future success.”
Mark Posniak, managing director of Octane Capital, said: “We have set ambitious targets for 2021 and Hattie and Mark will play an important role in helping us to achieve them. Both have exceptional track records and have already hit the ground running, adding value to the team from day one.
“Though 2021 could be an eventful year as the economic impact of the pandemic starts to feed through, it will bring no end of opportunities for property investors and we are expecting to be very busy as a result. The team we now have means we can put the pedal to the floor and at the same time maintain the very highest service levels that our introducers are used to.”
