Fount Holland founded A.H. Strategies in 1997 from his home in Muskogee, Oklahoma. With the help of friends, neighbors and local businesses, he built advertising campaigns that won Republican elections in unlikely places across Oklahoma. From the firm’s offices in Oklahoma City, Holland now directs his award-winning creative team in campaigns across America.
Holland’s clients have included Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett, State Treasurer Ken Miller, Lt. Governor Todd Lamb, Ohio Congressman Bob Latta, the National Republican Congressional Committee, the Missouri Republican House Caucus, numerous local and state leaders as well as initiative campaigns and committees.
He has represented more than 100 elected officials across Oklahoma still in office today. He is known as the architect of the historic Republican takeover of the Oklahoma House of Representatives, and was instrumental in the state Senate Republican’s rise to power.
Holland first became involved in politics as a Republican activist and district committeeman in Cherokee County, Oklahoma, and was later a field man for the Oklahoma Republican Party where he helped assemble Oklahoma’s first computerized statewide voter list.
He served as press secretary to U.S. Senator Tom Coburn between 1994 and 1997, and was an instrumental part of his first political team. A graduate of the University of Oklahoma, Holland was a journalist for the Tulsa World for nearly six years early in his career.
