Octane Capital appoints finance manager
Octane Capital has appointed Benjamin Donelien to its treasury team as finance manager.
He will report into Rob Graham, head of finance at Octane Capital.
Donelien is a fully qualified chartered management accountant and joins Octane from London-based CKH Innovations Opportunities Development, where he was also a finance manager.
His role will be to support Rob with all financial accounting and operational reporting for Octane’s ever-expanding loan book which is rapidly approaching £500m.
He will also work closely with the credit team to further streamline processes as the lender looks to grow its market share.
Jonathan Samuels, chief executive of Octane Capital, said: “Rob and Benjamin’s combined experience in modelling and analysis will be crucial in giving us the intelligence we need as we scale up and edge towards our second billion of lending.
“Benjamin’s help in evolving and adapting our processes will stand us in good stead as we target our next phase of growth.”
Donelien added: “Having admired Octane’s growth and vision from afar, joining was an easy decision.
“I look forward to contributing to Octane’s continued growth and developing my own skillset.
“The ambition and culture of the company is inspiring and I’m excited to get started.”
