"The Board of Kina considers it to be an appropriate time to expand the finance function within the Company, particularly as it looks to the next stage of exploration and development of some of its key projects," the PNG explorer said.

Mitchell's 20-year career started with KPMG and he has held senior financial roles at Novus Petroleum and Oil Search.

KP managing director Richard Schroder thanked outgoing CFO Lee Freeman for his efforts over the past 18 months and said he looked forward to having him "continue his association" with the company.

Mitchell will start up on October 1.
