Octane boosts sales team with new appointments

Octane Capital has announced the expansion of its sales team with the addition of Hattie Hall (pictured above) and Mark Stephenson.

Hattie joins the lender as an internal BDM and will report to Oli Greenspan, head of marketing and internal sales.

Prior to this, she worked at MT Finance as a senior case manager.

Mark has been appointed as an external BDM and will report to Liam Lawlor, sales director.

Before joining the specialist lender, he previously held positions at Castle Trust and Borro.

Commenting on the appointment, Hattie said: “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 [Posniak, managing director at Octane Capital], Jonathan [Samuels, founder and CEO at Octane] and Matt [Smith, director of credit at Octane], 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 added: “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.”

Posniak commented: “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.”
