Post production veteran returns to Deluxe as SVP of Sales at Encore New York to support the growing demand for the company’s TV post services.
LOS ANGELES -- Deluxe Entertainment Services Group has announced that long-time Deluxe post-production sales executive Russ Robertson has returned to the company as SVP of Sales, Encore New York, to support the growing demand for its TV post services in the region.
With scripted original series reaching a record number of 455 in 2016 and more shows delivering in high dynamic range (HDR) formats, Robertson’s 20 years of post experience supports content creators as they realize new revenue and creative opportunities in the global, multi-format market. He re-joins Deluxe from a year at Panavision, where he drove camera systems and production services as VP of Marketing.
“Russ is a superstar and his return adds great depth and experience to our worldwide Encore team,” said Domenic Rom, President of Deluxe TV Post Services. “He helped establish and build Encore’s presence in New York and has great relationships across the studio community here. It’s great to have him back.”
“I had an amazingly educational and exciting year learning about cameras and lenses, but there’s so much happening in post right now -- new models, a sea change in workflows with HDR, and so much opportunity to help clients create content for worldwide audiences, I couldn’t stay away,” said Robertson. “If you’re in post, Deluxe is where you want to be. The depth of knowledge is like nowhere else. The people are passionate about every job they work on. It feels like a boutique, but with worldwide resources to draw on.”
Robertson built his career at Deluxe, joining the Company in 2002 in Toronto and spending 14 years leading sales teams and efforts as VP of Sales in Toronto, Vancouver, and New York; helping to establish the New York outpost of Deluxe’s Encore in the process. He began his 20-year post-production career serving in sales and services roles at a number of facilities in Toronto.
