Chiang previously served as studio president at Zynga, where he oversaw development for the company’s free-to-play mobile and Facebook titles. He left Zynga last year.

He has also worked at Electronic Arts in numerous management roles. He began as an engineer, with programming concepts on various 90s games, including SNES classic WeaponLord.
