A new face will be leading the Department of Motor Vehicles, with Gov. Ned Lamont nominating Antonio Guerrera as commissioner. 

Guerrera, a former state representative, currently serves as a deputy commissioner with the agency. His appointment must be confirmed by the General Assembly.

Lamont named him to succeed Sibongile Magubane, who will step down at the beginning of next year after four years leading DMV.

The former Aetna information technology executive was appointed in 2019 and oversaw the streamlining of the agency, including the digitization of a range of services.

“When our administration started, I was clear that I wanted to focus our efforts on implementing new technologies that eliminate red tape and make interacting with state government easier and less time consuming,” Lamont said in a statement.

“I thank Bongi for the service that she has given to the people of Connecticut and for her work during our first term.”

Guerra served as co-chair of the legislature’s Transportation Committee, which has oversight of DMV, during his time in the state House.

He steered legislation that allowed particular DMV services to be performed by third parties such as auto clubs and associations, leading to the creation of express service centers across the state. 

“I look forward to stepping into my new role, and more importantly, I am eager to keep the momentum going,” Guerrera said.
