JOSHUA FETZNER

Job Title: Vice President Commercial Construction

Company: Titan Electrical Services of Southwest Florida

During his childhood in Erie, Pa. and Cape Coral, Fla., Joshua Fetzner remembers he and his brother working for their dad, an electrician.

“I cleaned out the warehouse, pulled material for the next job, and eventually started installing receptacles with my dad doublechecking behind me,” he says. “By the time I was 20, my dad started his own company, and I was running small projects with three- to four-person teams.”

In his early 20s, however, he got unexpectedly very sick and was unable to work in the field. Following a diagnosis of chiari malformation and emergency brain surgery, he spent a year in the healing process. His dad then decided to transition his son’s role to estimating.

“He had always done the estimating long-hand but felt like this was a good stepping stone for our company to grow with,” he says. “I moved to the office, learned the software, and before long, began training others. Eventually, I oversaw the estimators and became a project manager.”

At 28 years old, he passed the Florida state master’s exam, and he now oversees three project managers and an estimating crew of four. He supervises commercial projects ranging from small buildouts to large hotels, schools, and hospitals and has 31 team members under his leadership.

In the future, he would like to branch out to other locations within the state of Florida, and he and his brother will eventually take ownership of the company. He says his younger brother was selected for the 30 Under 30 a few years ago.

“I think it’s pretty cool,” he says. “I have to keep up with him, as he was picked back in 2021,” he says.
