Octane Capital has hired industry heavyweight Richard Keen as its head of key accounts and internal sales.

Richard joins the BTL, bridging, and development exit lender from Precise Mortgages, where he worked for eight years as its head of specialist sales support.

In his new role, Richard will focus on developing the internal sales and specialist BTL BDM teams, both of which will report to him. 

His background in property finance spans 25 years.

“Octane Capital are the new breed of real estate funder, and I have been determined to align with such a business ever since the shape of lending started to change, hence my excitement to be joining one of the leaders in the space at this stage of their growth journey,” said Richard.

“Agility, transparency and speed of capital deployed are the key considerations for customers now, and I’m really looking forward to helping our teams cement existing relationships, while introducing us to new ones as we expand our third-generation offering much wider. 

“Our goals are huge, but entirely achievable given our unique offering.”

Richard will report into Octane Capital’s sales director, Liam Lawlor, who added: “We’re excited to put Richard to work and there’s no doubt that his industry experience, existing contacts, ambitious nature and entrepreneurial spirit will see him quickly become a vital cog in an already well-oiled machine.” 

Mark Posniak, managing director at Octane Capital, commented that Richard’s experience and existing relationships will stand Octane Capital in great stead.

“His brief is to increase our depth of network and, in particular, to widen our mortgage club reach, as we rapidly look to achieve our second billion pounds in funds lent in the next 18 months.”
