Leftwich Management was founded in 1985 as Texas Acquisition & Title Services, Inc., a regional provider of title research and right of way acquisition services. As the company grew and began serving numerous clients throughout the U.S., the name was changed in 1993 to Contract Land Staff, Inc. to more accurately reflect the services it provided as well as to “de-regionalize” the company.
Over the next 15 years, the company continued to provide its traditional services while growing into one of the leading ROW service companies in the U.S. and developed cutting edge ROW project and asset management technology, established a solid GIS department along with the first ever Virtual Right of Way department, and through the CLS Professional Development Institute, developed and presented hundreds of innovative, state of the art workshops, classes and trainings across North American for the transportation and energy markets.
In the mid 2000’s the company began preparing itself for sale and in 2008, the assets of CLS were sold to a Private Equity investor.
The company’s name was then changed to Leftwich Management Inc., which initially provided oversight and management of real estate, oil and gas and other investments.
Brent and Dr. Mazie Leftwich remained actively involved with Contract Land Staff until June 30, 2017 at which time they concluded their career with CLS, and returned to LMI to expand its services to include consulting, management, training and administrative services for investment, real estate, transportation and energy entities.
