"It’s an incredible honour to collaborate with some of the brightest minds in the industry and contribute my experience to an organisation dedicated to driving innovation in entertainment and technology," Wen wrote.

"Deeply grateful to everyone who has come alongside me thus far. The journey ahead promises to be truly epic."
