Creighton Manning began providing professional services in 1965 under the direction of Roger L. Creighton and Charles W. Manning, P.E. Based in Albany, NY area, Roger and Chuck were pioneers in the transportation industry, having led major urban area transportation studies in Chicago and upstate New York. Roger authored a textbook on urban transportation planning in 1970 and later worked with Chuck to revolutionize the analysis of complex transportation problems by developing innovative software programs for use on the then state-of-the-art micro computers in the mid to late 1980s.

Since the 1990s, under the vision and guidance of co-owners John M. Tozzi, P.E., and Edward V. Woods, P.E., Creighton Manning has grown into a multidisciplinary engineering firm providing professional services to the transportation, municipal, land development, and energy markets. A second office location was added in 2019 in Westchester county to better serve our clients in the lower Hudson Valley area of New York.

In 2012, John and Ed added new partners who were leaders in the firm and shared their vision to grow Creighton Manning. These additional partners are Don Adams, P.E., PTOE, Shelly Johnston, P.E., Jeffrey Pangburn, P.E., and Donald Sovey, PLS. In 2021, the partnership continued to grow with the addition of a new partner Mark Sargent, P.E.
