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.
Breslow is the former Mayor of Sparks, Nevada. As Mayor,
Breslow led the effort to revitalize an oil-blighted gravel pit and
transform it into one of Sparks' newest recreational attractions, the
Sparks Marina. From 2003-2005, he served as chairman of the Employee
Management Committee for the State of Nevada.
Breslow has also served as Chairman of the Board of the
Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority. His private sector
experience includes CB Richard Ellis and Commercial Partners of Nevada,
both real estate services firms.
Breslow holds a Bachelor's degree in Journalism from the
University of Missouri and is in the Nevada Broadcasting Hall of Fame.
Breslow has also been an international commentator for the last eight
summer Olympic Games.
