Mexico-focused Gold Resource Corp (AMEX:GORO) said Thursday it has hired Paul Oberman as its new CFO, effective immediately.

Most recently, Mr. Oberman has been a partner with Catapult CFO Partners for the past two years, and prior to this, he was a partner with Tatum. In both roles, he served as interim CFO for several companies, including an international franchising operation and an oil and gas exploration, development and production company.

In his new role, Oberman will oversee Gold Resource's accounting, finance, tax compliance and financial planning, as well as strategic business initiatives.

Oberman began his career at the international accounting firms of KPMG and Deloitte & Touche, and has more than 40 years of broad-based finance experience, including in the mining industry.

"We are very pleased to welcome Mr. Oberman to the Gold Resource team," said president Jason Reid.

"I believe that Paul's senior financial experience, especially his extensive mining, oil and gas experience, and leadership will be invaluable to Gold Resource Corporation as we continue to bring value to shareholders as a low-cost gold producer focused on growth."

Gold Resource Corp has 100% interest in five potential high-grade gold and silver properties in Mexico's southern state of Oaxaca.
