To put it simply, Fount Holland is a fighter who knows how to win. As Oklahoma’s preeminent political strategist, he has worked with more than 100 current officeholders at the local, statewide and federal level. He also represents clients across the United States who call on him for his expertise in political direct mail.
Fount’s past clients include U.S. Rep. Markwayne Mullin, Okla. State Labor Commissioner Leslie Osborn, U.S. Rep. Bob Latta, Okla. State Treasurer Ken Miller, Okla. House Speaker Charles McCall and Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett.
Fount also represented T.W. Shannon, Oklahoma’s youngest and first African-American Speaker of the House.
In 2020, he oversaw the re-elections of Okla. Corporation Commissioner Todd Hiett and Markwayne Mullin — by his largest margin to date — and the re-elections of countless state representatives and senators. His work on the election of Bob Ed Culver to the state House was hailed by the Associated Press as making rural Democrats an “extinct species” in Oklahoma.
Fount is widely credited with the Republican takeover of the Oklahoma House of Representatives in 2004, ending an 83-year drought. Six years later, he played a vital role in Republicans winning a majority in the Oklahoma Senate for the first time in state history.
In 1997, Fount started his first political consulting company in Muskogee, Oklahoma, after working as communications director for then-U.S. Congressman (and former U.S. Senator) Tom Coburn, whose campaigns he had helped guide to victory.
Fount’s passion for winning extends to fitness, having shed nearly 150 pounds through martial arts, boxing, and other exercise and diet regimens. He is a devoted father and husband who enjoys drinking coffee and hanging out with his dachshund, whom he adopted from a rescue shelter with his wife, Vicky, and son, Elliot.
A graduate of the University of Oklahoma, Fount was a journalist with the Tulsa World for almost six years early in his career. He was raised in Tahlequah, Oklahoma.
