Octane Capital poaches two more from Octopus

Two employees have left Octopus Property to join newly formed company Octane Capital.

Graham Macaulay and Liam Lawlor will be joining the firm as senior credit manager and senior business development manager respectively, 

The announcement follows the recent hire of Octopus’ former finance manager Robert Graham. 

Octane Capital is a new company set up in May by Octopus founder Jonathan Samuels and former colleagues Mark Posniak and Matt Smith.

The firm, which is backed by private equity firm Pamplona Capital Management, focuses on “third generation lending” - complex and large loans that “brokers struggle to place”. 

“In their respective fields, Graham and Liam have two of the sharpest minds in the industry, and sharp minds need to be challenged”, said Posniak, managing director at Octane Capital.

“Both immediately bought into Octane’s risk-based pricing model and the bespoke, complex loans that we have set out to offer. Our goal is to create a lender where the most experienced people in specialist finance can test themselves each day, do so in a flat and fun environment, and work alongside brokers as partners.”
