Wright, 43, left GE in December, 1979, to become president of Cox Cable but was brought back to General Electric in May, 1983, and became president of the highly profitable Financial Services, which includes the GE Credit Corp., in March, 1984. A spokesman for GE refused to comment on the story. Tinker was vacationing in Europe and was not available for comment.
