Peter A. Carr was appointed to the newly created position of executive vice president and managing officer of Empire of America-California Federal Savings Bank, a Woodland Hills-based thrift.
Empire of America-California, with 18 offices in the state, was formed in July when Empire of America of Buffalo, N.Y., acquired Atlas Savings and Loan Assn. of San Francisco and Golden Pacific Savings & Loan Assn. of Windsor, Calif. The resulting operation's headquarters were moved to Woodland Hills.
Carr, 44, has worked for Empire of America for 25 years. He was previously Empire of America's senior vice president in charge of customer services at its Fort Worth regional headquarters.
