Octane Capital has achieved a record month and appointed Dominic Sheahan as a senior business development manager.

The lender, which launched in early May last year, said it completed £30m of loans in April, its biggest month yet, and passed £150m of completions in its first year.

Sheahan will join from Kent Reliance where he works in a similar role.

Jonathan Samuels, chief executive, Octane Capital, said: “To pass £150m of completions in our first 12 months and £30m in April alone, our biggest month yet, is the perfect way to celebrate our first birthday.

“But since launch, the most satisfying thing of all has been the way brokers have embraced the ‘product-less’ lending model we offer.

“The third generation of lending is focused on getting simple and complex clients alike to completion in the quickest time possible, not adherence to rigid and often uncommercial criteria.”

Mark Posniak, managing director, Octane Capital, added: “We’re delighted to welcome onboard Dominic Sheahan, a highly experienced BDM, who we are confident will make an immediate impact and help us to further scale the business in line with our growth plans. As a company, we would also like to wish Tom Clark all the best for the future.”

With more senior announcements imminent, Octane today also confirmed the departure of Tom Clark, sales director, who was part of the launch team.
