Lillie (Lou) Hannah

Lou Hannah, President and owner of Creative Destinations, Inc. passed away in August of 2017. Her sister Cindy and friends Bonnie, Lynne and Deb are moving forward with the business that Lou worked so hard to establish. Creative Destinations was her life’s work  and we honor Lou by treating her clients as she would have, and giving the best service possible.

Lou started her career in incentive travel program management in 1980, when she was hired as an assistant to the director of Incentive Travel at BMA (Builder Marts of America).  Many critical windows were opened for Mrs. Hannah during her time there.  She established herself as a professional through her personable customer relations and hands-on-approach to project management.  In 1990, after BMA shuttered their incentive travel operation, she moved on to become director of sales for a local travel company.  By 1995, she was a partner and head of the incentive department for Travel Group in Greenville, SC.  After accruing a total of 22 years of vital industry experience, she started Creative Destinations, Inc. in 2002.

When Lou first started in the travel business 30 years ago, it became a labor of love, a love that continued all her life.  Lou took a personal interest in her clients and she used her relationships with vendors to find the best destination, hotel or program for what the client has to spend.  After 30 years, most of the vendors were personal friends.

Lou believed her many years of experience put her in the lead for assisting her clients in implementing an incentive program that will be a success for them.

Lou was passionate about keeping her clients happy and returning year after year.  She was also passionate about the travel business and getting to know her clients and their customers.

Lou’s motto was to have integrity, live by the rules, don’t take advantage of anyone and do the best you can in any situation.  Never close a door or burn any bridges. We are striving to live up to Lou’s standards.
