Deluxe Entertainment Services Group Inc. promoted Domenic Rom as its president and general manager, Deluxe TV Post-Production Services.

Rom 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.

He also drove strategic digital marketing for ESPN.com, where he helped launch ESPN 360, an early OTT platform that woud become ESPN3.

Soroca began his career in advertising and joins Deluxe most recently from his CEO post at early stage tech startup Arazoo, a cloud-based workflow tool for design professionals.
