Background on Nathan Sproul
Born in Tempe, Arizona—one of the most diverse and dynamic enclaves in the American Southwest—Nathan Sproul grew up discussing politics, religion, and sports at the dinner table with his tight-knit family. Sproul’s passion for politics was uncovered during his educational career at Pillsbury College in Minnesota; his penchant for entrepreneurship within the political sphere flourished after graduation when he earned a coveted internship position in Washington for then-Congressman Jon Kyl (R-Arizona).
This awakening was developed further upon his return to Arizona, where he excelled as the head of the Arizona Christian Coalition. He was instrumental in building the group’s “powerhouse” legacy in the political arena, providing a skillful leadership that eventually elevated him to the helm of the Arizona Republican Party, for which he served as Executive Director from 1999 to 2002.
For the Arizona Republican Party, Nathan Sproul strengthened the party’s reputation as “party of the people” through a focus on economic growth through free enterprise and sensible business practice. His much-lauded efforts promoted candidates, campaigns, and policies that would help Arizonans from all walks of life prosper. His hard work with the state Republican Party set the framework for his career as a sought-after strategist.
Prior to founding Lincoln Strategy Group, Nathan was the Regional President for Voyager Expanded Learning where he oversaw sales and government relations for the company in Arizona and Nevada, learning the ins and outs of leadership and sales. Nathan Sproul launched Lincoln’s parent company, Sproul & Associates in 2003, and as it grew, moved operations to Lincoln Strategy in 2007.
