Going over his head is unlikely to work - particularly in the "early days" when he has no track record one way or the other. It's likely to be seen as you "not being a team player" and just resisting teh management changes that he - and presumably the guy who hired him - feel are needed to progress the project. Bear in mind that the "top boss" may have other reasons to hire him that you are not privy to (he could be a relation for example).

Live with it, have a quiet word with the new hire, or update your resume.
