Octane names new senior credit manager

Octane Capital has appointed Donna-Louise House (pictured above) as its senior credit manager.

She will report to Matt Smith, director of risk at Octane Capital.

Donna started her career in credit risk at GE Capital, before moving to Shawbrook Bank, where she served as a lending manager in the short-term loans division.

More recently, Donna worked at LendInvest for two years as underwriting manager, followed by a short stint at Falcon Bridging Finance as head of underwriting.

“I’ve known Matt and the senior Octane team for many years now and when the chance presented itself I leapt at the opportunity to work with them all,” said Donna.

“Octane [is] unique in that [its] productless model allows underwriters to actually be underwriters and not box-tickers limited by set-in-stone criteria.

“Working in the fast-paced environment of start-ups has also always appealed to me and there are few companies that can match Octane for get up and go.”

Matt added: “Donna is exactly the kind of driven and entrepreneurial underwriter that we want at Octane, someone who is not just technical but commercial — something all brokers want to see.

“Her experience is second to none and there’s no doubt that she will hit the ground running and further speed up our turnaround times.

“She’s the latest addition to what is the most experienced and talented credit team I have ever worked with.”
