Occidental Petroleum Corporation (NYSE:OXY) today announced the appointment of Cynthia L. Walker as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, effective August 6, 2012. Ms. Walker will assume the position from James M. Lienert, who has been Occidental’s Chief Financial Officer for the past two years.

Ms. Walker, 35, has most recently served as Managing Director at Goldman, Sachs & Co., where she enjoyed a 12-year career.

Ms. Walker has extensive experience in mergers and acquisitions and finance at one of the world’s top global investment banking and securities firms and with a specific focus on the upstream oil and gas industry. As a result of her background in these areas, she is tailor made to serve as our CFO. I very much look forward to working with her. I also want to thank Jim for his many accomplishments and I am pleased that he will continue to contribute to the Company’s success through his leadership of our Supply Chain and Information Technology organizations.”
