Steve Testar is the Co-Founder and CEO of Showcase SA. With an unwavering passion for everything South Australia and an uncanny ability to think outside the box, Steve is a formidable force in the business world.

In 2000, Steve made a life-changing decision with the hope of forging a new path. Armed with nothing but a backpack and a dream, he booked a one-way ticket from England to Australia. Choosing Adelaide as his home, Steve worked in residential and commercial property development, architectural and building. Over 12 years, he ran some of the biggest projects in SA aiding to deliver over 800 dwellings, shopping centres, ovals, parklands and entire suburbs. 

In 2016, Steve established his first business, Realis Property which provided a support mechanism for the launch of Showcase SA. When Brand SA faced defunding in June 2019, Steve saw an opening to continue their crucial work of supporting and fostering local South Australian businesses. Thus, Showcase SA was born. Steve’s passion for local business and strong network of South Australian professionals has driven Showcase SA to where it is today.

Steve’s devotion to helping South Australian businesses is also displayed in his charitable work. Together with Glam Adelaide and the Glam Adelaide Foundation, he raised almost $500,000 for South Australian bushfire affected communities in 2020 at the SA4SA Bushfire Appeal Gala. On Australia Day 2021, Kelly Noble (CEO of Glam Adelaide) and Steve were awarded the City of Adelaide Citizen of the Year award for the Community event of the Year for this event.

Steve is proud to call Adelaide home with his wife, Kelly Noble and their two daughters.
