Lori Speers is the Owner and C.E.O. of Levarté Travel and has more than 40 years of leadership experience in the travel industry. She has worked for Fortune 500 corporate travel departments, boutique Virtuoso agencies, and large host agencies. Levarté Travel is among TravelSavers’ “Top 40 Travel Agencies”.

Her mission with Levarté Travel is to lift professionals through a career in travel and is the driving force behind why she launched the company. Lori focuses on acquiring the proper training and tools to help Travel Advisors get a fast start to booking travel or, for existing Advisors, to help scale their business through efficiencies.

Host Account Advisory Board, Marival Resorts Advisory Board, American Society of Travel Advisors (A.S.T.A.) I.C. Advisory Committee and Dallas Chapter Treasurer, Travel A.L.L.I.E.S.

Lori remains focused on procuring the best tools, partners, and Advisors to help take the industry to the next level. Levarté Travel is a Premier Partner with C.L.I.A., Premium Member with A.S.T.A., and an ELITE TravelSavers member.


Let’s get personal. Lori resides with her husband, Tom, in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. They have four sons and eight grandchildren—her favorite quote. “The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.” – said Oprah Winfrey, and Lori’s favorite place to vacation is Positano, Italy, along the Amalfi Coast.
