Born in Boston and raised in Virginia, Casey Lavin is the sixth of eight children. His firsthand experience of the uplifting, healing energy of gathering around the family dinner table each night revealed the greater role hospitality can play in making the world a better place — and inspired a career dedicated to it.

An accomplished leader in luxury hospitality, Lavin has a record of achievement in driving world-class operations in highly competitive markets. Most recently, he led the successful repositioning of Palmetto Bluff in Bluffton, South Carolina. In an array of roles at iconic properties including The Sea Island Company, The Woodlands, The Greenbrier Resort, and The Sanctuary on Kiawah Island, Lavin led operations and teams that achieved multiple Forbes Five-Star designations, won accolades, dramatically increased revenue, and developed strategies, concepts, and events that transformed properties into renowned, legendary destinations. As President of BHC, Lavin sets the vision, balances business growth and flow through, assembles and nurtures award-winning teams, identifies new development opportunities, and ensures guest, employee, and community loyalty.

He has served as a board member and officer for an array of organizations, including Forbes Travel Guide Executive Advisory Board, Hilton Head/Bluffton Chamber of Commerce, Glynn County Airport Commission, Golden Isles Conventions & Visitors Bureau, Coastal Georgia Historical Society, Explore Charleston, and the Charleston Regional Development Alliance. He is also a member of the Southern Innkeepers Association and the Young Presidents Organization. Through his church community, he supports people experiencing homelessness. A devoted husband to Monica and father to Julia, Lavin is a voracious reader, music fan, piano player, and private pilot.

Hospitality is… “a powerful healing antidote to a busy and sometimes divisive world that craves meaningful connection.”
