Wolters Kluwer Audit, Risk & Compliance announced today that it has named Matt Sullivan general manager for its TeamMate audit management system in the Asia-Pacific region.
In this role, Sullivan will be responsible for overseeing TeamMate’s expansion efforts in the region, creating new business relationships and bringing new products and services to the marketplace.
Sullivan joined Wolters Kluwer Audit, Risk & Compliance’s parent company, Wolters Kluwer, more than 15 years ago and has extensive experience in the Asia-Pacific region, supporting the company’s growth in China, Southeast Asia, India and Australia. Most recently, he was managing director of CCH Australia & New Zealand for Wolters Kluwer, where he oversaw a substantial portfolio of information and software assets, helping drive growth organically and through acquisition. Earlier in his career, Sullivan was the managing director of CCH Asia, based first in Singapore and then Beijing. In that role, he spearheaded CCH’s entry into China and India. Prior to this, he lived and worked in Japan, establishing industry partnerships for Wolters Kluwer in the country.
“As TeamMate expands its presence in the Asia-Pacific region, Matt’s experience and deep understanding of the marketplace make him the ideal person to lead operations so we can continue to help growing businesses meet increasing compliance challenges,” said Mike Gowell, vice president and global general manager of TeamMate.
“With various countries in the Asia-Pacific region facing new or changing regulations, many companies are dealing with more complex requirements,” said Sullivan. “That coupled with rapid growth and development in Asian economies definitely creates a need for organizations across multiple industries to manage risk more transparently, and the internal audit process plays a critical role in that.”

More than 90,000 auditors and over 2,000 organizations across the world rely on TeamMate to improve the audit process, including risk assessment, scheduling, planning, execution, review, report generation, trend analysis, committee reporting and storage.
