ATLANTA - Graham-Field Health Products’ new owners have named Irwin Selinger the company’s new CEO.

Selinger served as the company’s CEO during its heady rise from a $9 million distributor of medical supplies in 1984 to a $440 million contender in 1997.

Some blame Selinger for the company’s subsequent descent into bankruptcy in May 2000. Selinger left the company in 1998, dogged by allegations that he’d propped up G-F’s stock price to enable the acquisition of Fuqua Industries.

A U.S. attorney confirmed that Selinger is still under indictment for those charges.
