CARSON CITY, NV – Governor Brian Sandoval today announced he has appointed Bruce Breslow as Director of the Department of Business and Industry, effective November 12, 2012. Breslow is currently Director of the Department of Motor Vehicles.
“Bruce’s people-first approach to problem solving has helped pioneer a new era for customer service at the DMV,” Governor Brian Sandoval said. “His innovative thinking has led to the development of mobile applications, the placement of DMV self service kiosks at grocery stores throughout the state and a reduction in wait times for customers at the DMV. I am confident that Bruce’s leadership and customer-first mentality will be an invaluable asset to B&I.”
Breslow was appointed DMV Director by Governor Brian Sandoval in early 2011. He formerly served as the Executive Director of the Nevada Agency for Nuclear Projects and as Commissioner and administrative law judge for the Transportation Services Agency under former Governor Kenny Guinn.
