Bruce Breslow

Governor's Office of Business

Bruce Breslow was appointed by Governor Brian Sandoval as the Director of the Department of Business & Industry in November 2012. Business & Industry oversees 13 diverse regulatory and administrative divisions: Athletic Commission, Insurance, Employee Management Relations Board, Manufactured Housing, Financial Institutions, Mortgage Lending, Housing, Labor, Industrial Relations, Transportation Authority, Injured Workers, Business Finance and Planning, Real Estate Division and the Taxicab Authority.

Prior to his appointment to B&I, Breslow served as the director of the Department of Motor Vehicles where he pioneered innovative solutions which led to an improved customer experience. Previously, he 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.

He 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.

Profits from the project will help sustain BTF’s maternal/child wellness and education efforts in the remote Humla District of northern Nepal. They will conduct two 5-day Safe Motherhood classes in November educating a total of 50 women.
