Man Shu Sum is leaving Singapore’s Media Development Asia to head up Mark Burnett Productions Asia.
Man will remain in his role as director of strategic relations at the MDA, which acts as a national regulator and also invests in and promotes Singaporean media companies, until mid May.
Man has been at the MDA for three years and will remain on the board of the Singapore Film Commission. He will be CEO at Mark Burnett Asia.
Burnett set up shop in Asia last year with a view to producing formats for local broadcasters that can then be exported around the world.
