Steve Shearer from SARTA awarded OAM

Steve Shearer, the Executive Director of the South Australian Road Transport Association (SARTA), has been awarded an Order of Australia Medal (OAM) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list. 

Shearer has filled the position at SARTA since 1994 and his 20-year service was acknowledged by the association members at a function in March.

Long regarded as an advocate who truly understands how vital road transport is to the everyday life of all Australians, Shearer has been a dedicated lobbyist and administrator on behalf of his association’s members.

“Great to see his hard work acknowledged and recognised,” was how SARTA President Sharon Middleton described the award. “He is as passionate about the industry as the people who actually own the trucks.”

“This is fine recognition for a passionate advocate for South Australian road transport,” said Stuart St Clair CEO of the Australian Trucking Association. 

Shearer’s OAM also recognised his role within the Burnside Hockey Club in Adelaide where he has been a member since 1974 and president since 2002.
