About Chris Wright
Wright, 66, has bought back Chrysalis’s wholesale entertainment distribution arm, months after selling the music group to BMG of Germany, which netted him £30m for his stake. The London business, which Wright built over 43 years, owned the rights to about 1,000 songs, including works by Michael Jackson and David Bowie (qv). Previous dividends and other assets take him to £70m.
