‘Product-less’ lender, Octane Capital, today announced that it has promoted three of its senior team. The promotions are as follows:

  • Liam Lawlor has been promoted from Senior BDM to Sales Director, overseeing some of Octane’s newest BDMs, including Bethan Jones, as Octane continues to grow its market share. Liam will continue to report into Managing Director, Mark Posniak
  • Graham Macaulay has been promoted to Head of Short Term Lending, with three of the credit managers reporting into him. He will continue to develop them while providing credit intelligence and support to the rest of the team. Graham reports into Matt Smith, Director of Credit and Risk
  • Donna-Louise House has been promoted to Head of Buy-to-Let Credit. Donna is heading up Octane’s new BTL team, which will be emerging from soft launch in the coming months. Donna reports into Matt Smith, Director of Credit and Risk


Octane soft-launched its Buy-to-Let offering during lockdown with a number of key partners and will be widening its distribution towards the end of the summer.

Jonathan Samuels, pictured, CEO, Octane Capital, commented:

“We’re always keen to promote talent and commitment from within and Liam, Graham and Donna, who have worked tirelessly to grow Octane in recent years, deserve to have their hard work rewarded. Each is a huge asset to the company and we are confident they will continue to go from strength to strength in their new roles. Things have picked up sharply since the property market emerged from lockdown and all three will be vital to ensuring we continue to grow our market share at a time when, more than ever, experience counts.”
