Sharon McMahon (45) is the third generation of the Dunne family dynasty to reach the c-suite of the Irish retailer and is considered one of the front runners to replace her aunt Margaret Heffernan as head of the company, which employs 18,000.

Along with brothers Brian, Paul and John, she inherited their mother Elizabeth's stake in the business back in 1994. Sharon is thought to have bought out some of her siblings' shares in the company.
