Smith & Harroff (S&H) was founded in 1973 by J. Brian Smith and the late Mark Harroff. The firm initially established its reputation as a highly successful political consulting and advertising agency known best for winning seemingly “unwinnable” races. Until 2002, S&H produced advertising for 10-15 candidates in each election cycle and, with over a hundred victories, we had one of the best win-loss records in the business.
In the mid-1970s, S&H became one of the first political consulting firms to successfully transition into corporate public affairs and public relations counseling, which now accounts for most of the firm’s billings.
S&H ranks among the most highly regarded public relations firms in the country, specializing in strategic communications counseling, corporate public affairs and issue advertising.
