Wayne Madsen, the Derbyshire captain, has signed a new three-year deal with the club after leading them to Championship promotion in 2012.
Madsen, 28, was Derbyshire's leading run-scorer in the Division Two campaign with 885 including a career-best of 231 against Northamptonshire which formed part of a 261-run partnership for the ninth wicket with Tom Poynton.
The Division Two title was Derbyshire's first piece of silverware since 1993 and the retention of Madsen, who made his county debut in 2009, is another piece of the jigsaw as they prepare to try and stay in Division One.
"What we achieved last year was incredible and this is a club that's growing and moving in the right direction on and off the field," Madsen said. "To lead this squad is a great honour, I'm so excited about where we are heading and we're looking forward to challenging ourselves in Division One next season."
Head coach Karl Krikken added: "The way he has led the side this season, in his first year in the job, has been absolutely magnificent. He's got a great captaincy style and the example he sets the younger players in terms of his work ethic is fantastic. I'm delighted we're continuing to work together to keep taking the club forward."
