Man Shu Sum has left his position as CEO of Mark Burnett Productions’ Singapore-based Asian arm to join MediaCorp Raintree Pictures as managing director.

He replaces Daniel Yun who quit Raintree last month after 11 years at the helm to establish his own production venture Home Run Pictures.

Man became CEO of Mark Burnett’s Asian arm in May 2008, leaving his previous position as director of strategic relations at Singapore’s Media Development Authority (MDA).

MediaCorp CEO, Lucas Chow, said he was pleased to welcome Man to the organisation, as his experience in the international film industry would boost Raintree Pictures in its next phase of development.

Man will report to Chow and take up the new post from December.
