The director of the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles is retiring next month after nearly three decades.
Troy Dillard is scheduled to retire effective Oct. 23, after leading the department since 2012. Gov. Brian Sandoval called Dillard an exceptional leader and tremendous public servant and said he was sorry to see him go.
Sandoval said this week that he would appoint a replacement at a later time.
Dillard has worked with the state since the late 1980s. He’s been part of both the Department of Public Safety and the DMV.
Sandoval said the DMV has made significant strides in adding employees and upgrading technology under Dillard’s leadership.
The agency is also losing lead spokesman David Fierro, who left the department this month for a job in Florida.
