NEWARK, N.J. — Besides the job he won with Donald Trump, “Apprentice” winner Randal Pinkett will now be doing some work for the mayor-elect of New Jersey’s largest city.
Pinkett was among 12 people named by Mayor-elect Cory Booker as leaders of his transition team. Pinkett, 35, will co-chair the economic development section, Booker spokeswoman Sakina Cole said.
Pinkett, CEO of a management consulting firm in Newark, was the latest winner on Trump’s NBC reality show. He chose a job working on casino expansions in Atlantic City. Like Booker, he is a Rhodes Scholar.
Booker, 37, who takes office in July, also named former New Orleans Mayor Marc Morial and James H. Coleman Jr., a former New Jersey Supreme Court justice, as honorary chairs of the transition team.
