In May 2013, KPMG member firms in ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) region got together and established ASEAN Management Consulting (MC) to better serve clients and take on market opportunities together. Spanning Brunei Darrusalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, ASEAN MC presents a model of working collaboratively across the region for KPMG.

Advisory Partner Ho Wah Lee, who led this engine of growth for the past year as the head of ASEAN MC, has been setting up and strengthening the relationships between the country member firms. According to Wah Lee (right), relationships are strong, and good progress has been made on several fronts, with some significant wins made. 

He is also happy to report that now at the half-way mark, they have a strong pipeline that is on track to achieving close to the revenue target set for financial year 2014. Besides working on developing stronger collaboration within ASEAN MC, Wah Lee has also been looking for a successor for his role.

Advisory Partner Andrew Tinney now takes on the role as head of ASEAN MC. This appointment came into effect on 1 May 2014. Andrew joined KPMG Singapore in January 2014 as a partner in the financial services sector. He has over 25 years of experience in helping firms design and drive transformational change, and has worked with and for many of the world's leading financial institutions including Deutsche Bank, Barclays, JP Morgan Chase and Goldman Sachs.

He said: "MC is a key workstream in our global growth priorities, and it is an exciting time for the advisory business.

A world-class management consulting capability is at the heart of our firm's future, supporting our goal of being the best firm to work with. I'm really excited to be able to contribute to this development in the region."

Wah Lee will continue to be involved in supporting the growth aspirations of the global firm in the ASEAN region across all of KPMG's service offerings. Said Wah Lee: "I am grateful for the close collaboration of our MC partners, directors and staff in ASEAN.

Collectively, we are better positioned to work with our KPMG global and regional leaders and to build capabilities and pursue opportunities to grow our business. Thank you for your support and efforts in the past year."
