Gary McGann

Dublin-based McGann (64) has overseen the extraordinary recovery in Smurfit shares, which fell off a cliff following its IPO in 2007.

He owns a €9.3m stake in the packaging company but has been one of the top corporate earners over the last decade, pocketing a cool €5.28m last year. Previous earnings, salaries and dividends add more than €19m. The former Anglo Irish Bank director was an investor in the Atrium building in Sandyford, which was sold for €100m last year.
