Kevin Nowlan

KEVIN Nowlan was a rampaging full back for St Mary's and Leinster in the late Nineties, playing in the Heineken Cup and ultimately winning three caps for Ireland. He made his debut against the All Blacks in a 63-15 defeat, following up with a two-try display against Canada. His final match came in an embarrassing defeat by Italy in Bologna. Off the pitch, he worked with Anglo Irish Bank before switching to Johnny Ronan and Richard Barrett's Treasury Holdings. After Treasury Holdings, the property executive worked as managing director of his family property advisory firm WK Nowlan until 2010 when he joined Nama. The chartered surveyor transferred his 30 per cent shareholding in WK Nowlan into a trust before moving to Nama. WK Nowlan worked as one of Nama's key consultants. During his time at Nama, Nowlan became one of the key players within the State agency, serving as busted tycoon Sean Dunne's portfolio manager in Nama. Last February, Nowlan upped sticks and returned to WK Nowlan. More recently, he raised €365m on the stock market through Hibernian REIT -- a fund set up to buy property.
