Octane Capital adds to BTL sales team
Octane Capital has appointed Dylan Bleasdale and Emma Kelman as specialist buy-to-let (BTL) business development managers (BDMs).
Bleasdale joins Octane from Zephyr Homeloans, having previously worked for Zephyr founder, Computershare Loan Services.
He is based in the North East and will be covering the North of England.
Kelman joins from Kensington Mortgage Group where she worked as a BDM for over two decades.
She is based in London and will cover the South of England.
Liam Lawlor, sales director at Octane Capital, said: “We’ve been bowled over by the level of demand from brokers for our buy-to-let product and have brought Emma and Dylan onboard to specifically accommodate it.
“They’re both highly experienced operators and know the market inside out so will hit the ground running.
“Our buy-to-let loans are targeting a demographic that the vast majority of lenders actively avoid, with many of our borrowers to date having multiple non-standard circumstances.
“But this is where we excel as a lender and we look forward to helping as many brokers as we can during 2021.”
Kelman added: “Working at Octane is like being part of a family. It’s a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where everyone trusts everyone else and has got your back.
“Our buy-to-let product is proving a massive hit with brokers and I’m really looking forward to building on that.
“Best of all, deals I would previously have had to say no to I can now give the green light, and that puts a real spring in your step.”
