A 32-year-old education strategist who has worked in the public school systems in Newark, N.J., and New York City was introduced by Gov. Christie Wednesday as superintendent of Camden's school system, which is under state control.

 
Paymon Rouhanifard was working as chief strategy and innovation officer for Newark Public Schools before Christie appointed him. He previously worked as chief executive of the Office of Portfolio Management in the New York City Department of Education.
 
The New Jersey State Board of Education must now review and approve Rouhanifard for the job.
 
He was selected from more than 100 applicants through a national search conducted by state Education Commissioner Chris Cerf.
