Local attorney Christopher Thomas and Rochester Institute of Technology business school dean dt ogilvie will head the search committee to fill positions in the administration of Mayor-elect Lovely Warren.

In addition, Strategic Community Intervention LLC, a management consultant business founded by former mayor William Johnson Jr., will be retained to help with the transition, Warren said Wednesday.

Thomas, a partner at Nixon Peabody LLP in Rochester, represented the city of Rochester in two lawsuits, the first of which challenged the authority of the acting mayor to execute mayoral duties. The second upheld City Council’s decision to hold a special election to fill the mayoral seat vacated by Robert Duffy after he resigned to become state lieutenant governor.

Dean and professor of business strategy and urban entrepreneurship at RIT’s Saunders College of Business, ogilvie formerly was professor of business strategy and urban entrepreneurship at Rutgers Business School. She founded the Center for Urban Entrepreneurship and Economic Development and its Scholarship Training and Enrichment Program, which helps incoming freshman at the business school.

Johnson founded his consulting firm earlier this year.
