FISHER SCIENTIFIC INTERNATIONAL INC. SELECTS PRESIDENT OF NEW SUBSIDIARY
 HAMPTON, N.H., June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- To accelerate its expansion outside the United States, Fisher Scientific International Inc. (NYSE: FSH) has selected one of its key executives, Stelios B. Papadopoulos, to become president of Fisher Scientific Worldwide, a new subsidiary with responsibility for development of Fisher's business outside North America.
 "Because of the rapid expansion of global research and development by our major customers, Fisher's greatest growth opportunities today are in markets abroad," Paul M. Montrone, president and chief executive officer of Fisher Scientific International Inc., said in announcing the appointment.
 Papadopoulos has been president of Fisher Scientific International's Pittsburgh-based Fisher Scientific Company subsidiary since 1989 and was previously president of Instrumentation Laboratory, Lexington, Mass.
 "Steve Papadopoulos has done a great job in Pittsburgh and has the leadership qualities, knowledge and experience to head this significant new activity," Montrone said.
 Succeeding Papadopolous in Pittsburgh is Phillip T. Vogel, also a former president of Instrumentation Laboratory. "We are pleased to welcome Tom Vogel back to the family and have full confidence that Fisher Scientific Company will continue its impressive performance under his leadership," Montrone said.
 Vogel has held key executive positions in several other healthcare companies, including Abbott Laboratories' Diagnostic Division, where he was a senior vice president, and Ares-Serono Diagnostics, where he was president. Most recently he was president of the Polaroid-Behringwerke joint-venture PB Diagnostic Systems, Inc.
 He has also managed semiconductor plants for Texas Instruments in Italy, Singapore and Germany. As a venture capitalist in the mid-1980s, Vogel invested in and founded several companies in Florida.
 An engineering graduate of Georgia Institute of Technology with a master's degree in business administration from the Wharton Business School, he brings a wide range of health-care and electronics experience and successes to bear on Fisher's challenges and opportunities in the 1990s.
 Fisher is the oldest and largest supplier of instruments, equipment and other products to the scientific community in North America.
