LOS ANGELES — Deluxe Entertainment Services Group (bydeluxe.com) has promoted Domenic Rom to president and general manager of Deluxe TV Post-Production Services. Rom, formerly the managing director of Deluxe’s New York studio (Encore/Company 3/Method), will drive Deluxe’s global services for television — specifically, the Encore and Level 3 branded companies. He will be based in Los Angeles, reporting to Deluxe CEO John Wallace.
Deluxe has also promoted long-time Deluxe VP Jennifer Tellefsen to senior vice president, global enterprise TV sales, replacing Robert Glass. Glass will stay on with Deluxe for a period of time as Tellefsen transitions into the role.
Rom has been delivering, innovating, and leading television post production services for three decades. He joined Duart Film Labs in 1984 as a colorist, working his way up to executive VP of the company, running both its digital and film lab divisions. In 2000 he joined stock footage/production company Sekani (acquired by Corbis), helping to build a fully digital content distribution network. In 2002 he founded The Lab at Moving Images, the first motion picture lab to open in New York in 25 years. It was later acquired by PostWorks, which named Rom COO, overseeing its Avid rentals, remote set ups, audio mixing, color correction and editorial businesses. In 2010, Rom joined Technicolor NY as SVP post production. When Postworks NY acquired Technicolor NY, Rom again became COO of the now-larger company. He joined Deluxe in 2013 as general manager in New York.
“I love what I’m seeing today in the industry,” says Rom. “It has been said many times, but we’re truly in a golden age of television. The best entertainment in the world is coming from the networks and a whole new generation of original content creators. It’s exciting to be in a position to service that work. There are few, if any, companies that have invested in the research, technology, and talent to the degree Deluxe has, to help clients take advantage of the latest advancements – whether it’s HDR, 4K, or whatever comes next, to create amazing new experiences for viewers.”
