KEN DRUMM, the younger brother of disgraced Anglo Irish Bank chief executive David Drumm, is a north Co Dublin-based businessman with interests in the building and hospitality industries.
One of eight siblings, Mr Drumm (42) worked as a manager in pub in Skerries after leaving school - where he stayed for six years, before taking up a managerial position at a nightclub in Balbriggan.
In the mid-1990s, he became the franchise holder for the Judge Roy Beans pub on Nassau Street in central Dublin.
In 2006 he branched out into the construction industry as a director of a firm called Okohaus Superstructures Ltd, which specialised in erecting timber frame buildings.
The company was involved in the construction of schools in Gorey, Co Wexford and Portlaoise, Co Laois. However, it got into difficulty in late 2008 and was forced into receivership.
More recently, Mr Drumm has been involved in efforts to re-launch the famous Dublin nightclub Renards, which was once a regular haunt for celebrities.
