Third generation lender, Octane Capital, today announced it has hired George Lyall as internal business development associate. He will report into Oli Greenspan, Octane Capital's head of internal sales.
George joins Octane Capital from Millbrook Mortgage Management, a major residential lender in Australia where he worked closely with clients and brokers on complex and non-conforming loans.
Prior to that George worked as a Commercial Credit Analyst at La Trobe Financial Services, where he was pivotal in assessing and reviewing loan applications from mortgage brokers around Australia.
George's role at Octane Capital will be to work closely alongside brokers and the firm's business development managers to ensure the process of taking a loan from initial enquiry to completion is both quick and seamless.
Octane Capital is a rapidly growing 'product-less' #3rdgen lender and the only to adopt this unique model in the UK. The company has expanded from a team of just three last year to its current roster of 23.
George Lyall, internal business development manager, Octane Capital, said:
“Octane Capital has already shown itself to be a major force in specialist lending and joining such an experienced team was too good an opportunity to pass up. I'm already loving my role of dealing with brokers and BDMs out on the road, a growing number of whom are waking up to the many benefits of product-less lending. Octane’s flexibility means it does things a little bit differently, and it’s exciting to be part of this growing and ambitious team.”
Mark Posniak, managing director, Octane Capital, added:
“The move from Australia will be a big change for George, but he's already settled in and there's no doubt that his expertise and enthusiasm will see him thrive in his new role. George joins us with years of experience liaising with BDMs and brokers and this will stand him in great stead as he gets to grips with the processes and structures at Octane."
