Sean oversaw new technology developments as well as all operational activity for Deluxe across the globe working with producers and Hollywood executives to deliver premium theatrical releases.

Adrian is incredibly well networked globally and has the drive and commercial understanding to diversify and move EIKON to the next stage of growth. Sean is one of the leading technical and operational experts in the industry and represents everything that is important to EIKON, quality in service, technology and delivery.”
McCarten added: “I’ve known the EIKON founders for well over a decade and have always been impressed by what’s been achieved at EIKON, when the opportunity arose I was keen to join up with such ambitious and driven operators and look forward immensely to helping grow the business and helping the company deliver on their future ambitions.”
Romano added: “I was extremely impressed with the technical excellence and quality in both people, facility and operation, what has been achieved at EIKON over 7 years is amazing. Their reputation proceeds them in the industry, and I look forward to further enhancing EIKON’s customer’s trust by delivering continued excellence.”
