Octopus Property has appointed Nick Westoby and James Nunn as fund managers within its commercial team.
Nick and James will be responsible for supporting the growth of Octopus Property’s commercial lending portfolio, managing both institutional and retail capital on behalf of Octopus Group.
Ludo Mackenzie, head of commercial property at Octopus Property, said: “I strongly believe in building a team which has direct experience as investors and developers, rather than pure banking.
“We want people who genuinely understand real estate and as a consequence, can make more informed decisions.
Mario Berti, chief executive of Octopus Property, added: “This is an exciting time for the company, and with the support of the wider Octopus Group, we look forward to further cementing our position as a market leader in the provision of specialist finance.”
Nick joins from Hatfield Philips International where he was senior vice president, whilst James was an associate at D2 Private.
These appointments come after a list of new appointments at Octopus Property, including a new chief operating officer and head of marketing.
