David Fritzinger, 30, led more than 200 combat patrols as a platoon leader in Kandahar, Afghanistan. So leading a corporate project team should be a piece of cake, right?

Fritzinger’s civilian job as a project manager for APi Group Inc., a Minnesota-based parent company to more than 40 life safety, energy, specialty construction and infrastructure companies, IS much safer than going outside the wire. But there are still challenges. “In order to be effective you must be able to demonstrate leadership more through influence than direct reporting relationships – that’s the biggest difference,” he says.

To help learn the ropes, Fritzinger participated in APi Group’s Veteran’s Rotational Program (VRP) after he exited the Army in 2012 – spending eight months working at two of APi Group’s companies. “I had the opportunity to gain exposure to many different aspects of our organization,” he says.

Fritzinger grew up in Kiron, a town of less than 300 residents in western Iowa. He earned a business degree at Bethel University in Minnesota before earning his commission in 2008 at Fort
Benning, Ga.

The leadership skills Fritzinger learned and honed during his Army career serve him well now as a civilian. “In the infantry we are taught as leaders to lead from the front, and it is the ability to continually adapt and overcome that will drive success,” he says. “These are traits and lessons, paired with the right attitude, that are applicable in any circumstance.”

Fritzinger left the military after four years to spend more time with his family. His transition was pretty smooth, but he understands the angst that comes with taking off the uniform. “The job search can be grueling and at times nerve-racking – the fear of the unknown is real, especially for military members who have been brought up in an environment with a relatively well-defined career path. The best advice is to start the process early, and look at the culture of an organization rather than the specific role.”
