Dragonfly Property Finance adds two credit managers to its fast-growing team


Short- and medium-term lender, Dragonfly Property Finance, part of the Octopus group, today announced it has hired Dan Thorne and Edward Macan as Credit Managers.

Dan Thorne joins Dragonfly with over 10 years’ experience in financial services, most recently at Bluestone Mortgages as a Mortgage Underwriter. Prior to that he spent 2.5 years at Metro Bank in a similar role.

Edward Macan also has previous experience working in financial services. Before joining the Dragonfly team, he worked for property finance provider, Regentsmead, in London as a Loans Executive.

Mark Posniak, Managing Director, Dragonfly Property Finance, commented:

“As our default rate of less than 0.1% on over £2bn of loans hopefully shows, we take risk very seriously at Dragonfly. In our current rapid growth stage, ensuring our underwriting remains as robust as ever is key and that’s where Ed and Dan come in. They’re not just experienced and knowledgeable but share the one thing we value above all at Dragonfly: a keen nose for risk.”

Dan Thorne, Credit Manager, Dragonfly Property Finance, added:

“Dragonfly have an exceptional track record when it comes to risk and so for me this is a fantastic opportunity to further my own knowledge and skills. The speed at which we’re growing also means there’s plenty of room for career progression, which is always a huge motivating factor when starting out in a new job. I can’t wait to get stuck in.”

Edward Macan, Credit Manager, Dragonfly Property Finance, commented:

“Everyone in property finance respects Dragonfly and I’m delighted to have the chance to finally work here.  What appealed to me wasn’t just the opportunity to be surrounded by the industry’s best underwriters but also the fact that no two days are the same. The breadth of projects Dragonfly works across is extremely impressive.”
