Mark Posniak
Managing Director & Co-FounderOctane Capital
Mark Posniak is Managing Director and Co-Founder of Octane Capital, the UK’s first ‘3rd generation’ lender. The 3rd generation of bridging finance combines the bespoke loan construction of the 1st, pre-Crash generation, with the professionalism and transparency of the 2nd generation of bridging finance that emerged in 2009. Mark has worked in specialist lending for well over a decade, and was instrumental in the success of Dragonfly Property Finance alongside Matt Smith and Jonathan Samuels, Octane Capital’s two other Co-Founders. Between 2009 and 2016, the Dragonfly Property Finance team loaned over £2.3bn with a default rate of under 0.1%. In a previous life, Mark was a semi-professional cricketer and, born in South Africa, has a tendency to harp on about that World Cup win in 1995.
