Octane recruits finance manager

Octane Capital has appointed Benjamin Donelien (pictured above) as finance manager for its treasury team.

Benjamin, who is a fully qualified chartered management accountant, has joined Octane from CKH Innovations Opportunities Development, where he was also a finance manager.

In his new role, he will support Rob Graham, head of finance at Octane Capital, with all financial accounting and operational reporting for the lender’s expanding loan book, which is approaching £500m.

He will also work closely with the credit team to further streamline processes as the company looks to grow its market share.

“Having admired Octane’s growth and vision from afar, joining was an easy decision,” said Benjamin. 

“I look forward to contributing to Octane’s continued growth and developing my own skillset. 

“The ambition and culture of the company is inspiring, and I’m excited to get started.”

Jonathan Samuels, CEO at Octane, added: “Rob and Benjamin’s combined experience in modelling and analysis will be crucial in giving us the intelligence we need as we scale up and edge towards our second billion of lending. 

“Benjamin’s help in evolving and adapting our processes will stand us in good stead as we target our next phase of growth.”
