Don Braid - Group Managing Director of Mainfreight

Don has over 38 years' experience in the freight industry, including 22 with Mainfreight. Don 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 last year with revenue increasing from just over $1 billion to $3 billion. The results have consistently been strong as Don expanded the company's three core businesses - transport, warehousing, and air and ocean carriage - from Australasia to Europe, Asia and the US.

In a highly competitive global industry, Mainfreight's approach of putting people first, taking a long-term view and no-nonsense approach of getting on with the job has resulted in this proud Kiwi company successfully delivering in all the markets it operates in. Don was named Executive of the Decade and Mainfreight was awarded Company of the Year at the Deloitte Top 200 Awards in 2019. Don has also been the recipient of the Deloitte Top 200 Executive of the Year in 2008 & 2011 (one of only two executives to have achieved this in the history of the awards), INFINZ Leadership Award in 2016 and New Zealand Shareholders' Association Beacon Award in 2018.

About us - The AUT Investment Club was founded in 2011 and is a student-run society. Our purpose is to get students excited about a career in finance, educate them on investing and help members to form relationships with industry professionals.
