Tom Regal

“People at PRO-TEK have a love of motion pictures and a reverence for vintage film. These are individuals who have written books about the history of film and have knowledge that is simply not available anywhere in the world. They are collectors and enthusiasts who know the value of the archives they are protecting.”

Tom Regal joined LAC Group in 2014 to take over operations for PRO-TEK Vaults, the film restoration and preservation business started by Eastman Kodak in 1993 and acquired by LAC Group in 2013. Mr. Regal has 30 years of experience in the entertainment industry, with the last twenty specializing in preservation and restoration.
