Meet the team: introducing the SFS technology finance team

Businesses are making moves to get staff connected from home with new hardware, software and services  to provide  agile working technology. Our Technology finance team has been supporting this every step of the way by making investment financially sustainable with flexible finance solutions . With that in mind, I wanted to introduce our fantastic team who’ve been working hard to support tech resellers to help businesses on their digitalization journey.


David McCourbrie- Head of Technology Finance


My name is David McCoubrie and I am Head of Technology Finance at SFS. Before joining the Siemens family in 2019, I worked for over 20 years in the vendor finance channel for companies including DLL, CIT and GE Capital. I have worked in both the direct and indirect channels and have managed relationships at both a global and UK level. My experience covers the whole suite of financial product offerings that tech companies will need, so I like to think I’m an expert at finding the ideal finance offering for your tech customers. When I’m not finding the perfect solution to suit your business, I can be found on the side of a swimming pool. I am a Head Coach at a Swimming Club near Bristol. I’ve trained swimmers up to National and International level.


Martin Shaw- Business Development Manager


Martin is our Business Development Manager, so he’s directly responsible for onboarding specialist technology resellers and manufacturers in the UK to the Siemens Vendor partner programme. Before joining the team in 2019, Martin had worked in the Tech market for over 10 years with every tech channel reseller and distributor you could possibly imagine. He also has extensive knowledge of the software funding market, working with vendors in a number of software products including security software and CAD. His pastimes include a passion for Rugby, cooking and can be found on the Golf course at the weekend. Newly married Martin is a family focussed man and enjoys tending to his two chickens.


Getting to know each other feels particularly important at a time when we’re all working remotely and face-to-face introductions aren’t always possible. Hopefully you’ve learnt something about us – now we want to hear from you! If you think you might be interested in learning about our range of flexible solutions, please get in touch. Our expert team draws on a wealth of funding knowledge to offer a bespoke solution designed to support your sales and enable your customers to acquire the best technology solutions for their needs.


As an experienced lender, our access to available funds and our position as part of the Siemens Group makes us a dependable finance partner for technology vendors. Reach out to us here or by sending me a message.
