COO / President, Interactive Entertainment, Platform & Content Groups

Chinese tech giant Tencent is the biggest earner of gaming revenue globally, but its interactive entertainment unit under Ren has doubled down on the company’s Western presence.

In December 2021, Tencent launched label Level Infinite, intended to house games aimed at global markets, such as its “Warhammer” titles.

That same month, Tencent brought on Shawn Layden, Sony’s former head of PlayStation Studios, as a strategic adviser.
