Mainfreight's Don Braid has come out on top at the Deloitte Top 200 Awards in Auckland.

Around a 1000 business elites gathered at Spark Arena to recognise high fliers in our largest companies.

Braid, who is Mainfreight's group managing director, was named executive of the decade.

Braid has been at the helm of Mainfreight for all of the past decade and during that time group profits have risen from $35 million to $141 million this year with revenue increasing from just over $1 billion to $3 billion today.

His twin sons Cory and Jason also work in the business — Cory in Australia and Jason in Europe.
