John Eshuis appointed as Mainfreight's Group IT Manager

We are pleased to announce the appointment of John Eshuis to the role of Group IT Manager, replacing Kevin Drinkwater who is retiring from the business at the end of 2020.

John has been with Mainfreight since 2002, and has held a variety of Finance and IT roles during this time, both in the United States and New Zealand. His most recent responsibilities include the development of our Transport software platform in use in New Zealand, Australia and the USA.

John was born in the Netherlands, but has spent most of his life in New Zealand. His Dutch heritage will be invaluable as Mainfreight further develops its European footprint.

We are extremely fortunate to have had several exceptional internal candidates to make our selection from, which is a measure of Kevin’s successful management of our IT division. We thank Kevin once again for his tremendous contribution to the success of Mainfreight over these past 34 years - Don Braid, CEO
