Post-production industry veteran Domenic Rom has been promoted to the role of president and general manager, 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 vice president Jennifer Tellefsen to senior vice president, Global Enterprise TV Sales, replacing Robert Glass, effective immediately. 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 Vice President 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 the first 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. Highly successful at servicing advertising and television clients, it was 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 senior vice president post production and was instrumental in building the company into a leadership position. 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.
Rom said, “I love what I’m seeing today in the industry. 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.”
Deluxe CEO John Wallace said, “Throughout his career Dom has been proactive about building infrastructure and partnerships with technology pioneers, and about supporting and working with talent to anticipate what clients are going to need next, to be there with the right services. For decades the top shows in the industry have come to him knowing that he can help them get even the most challenging, groundbreaking work done, at the highest quality. We’re looking forward to having him drive our television initiatives on a bigger scale as we continue to build and develop our teams and offerings.”
