Imperial Bank, Los Angeles, the principal subsidiary of Imperial Bancorp, has hired Stephen P. Yost to be executive vice president and chief credit officer.

He is to succeed Eldon K. Lloyd on Jan. 11, and Mr. Lloyd plans to retire next month after nearly 18 years at the bank.

Mr. Yost joined Imperial Tuesday after working as chief financial officer of Outlook Associates Inc., a Long Beach health-care and systems consulting company. Before that he was senior credit officer in Mellon Bank's West Coast office in Los Angeles and, still earlier, was senior vice president and manager of credit administration in San Francisco for First Interstate Bank of California.
