An influential name in the oil and gas industry, Matthew Fleeger is a businessman of notable stature. Fleeger, much like many entrepreneurs, attended a prestigious college where he earned a degree in business. While attending Southern Methodist University, Fleeger developed a deep-seated interest in finance and marketing. What Fleeger would soon realize was that his unquenchable thirst first knowledge would bode well for success. Seemingly immediately after entering his desired line of work, Fleeger was ranking among the most illustrious of businesspeople in his trade. As an attempt to acquire a keen understanding of his field, Fleeger took any opportunity that came knocking.
After transitioning from job to job, Fleeger felt seasoned enough to branch out on his own. In 1993, Fleeger leveraged the knowledge he’d amassed to create his own organization, Med Solutions. When Fleeger founded MedSolutions, he had aspirations of reshaping the waste management landscape. He did just that when he devised revolutionary alternatives to healthcare waste disposal methods. In short, MedSolutions was responsible for the treatment and management of pollutants that healthcare facilities left in their wake. Fleeger’s undertaking proved wildly successful, and he relished his time at the helm.
In 2007, Fleeger received the proposal of a lifetime when Stericycle, a similar corporation, offered Fleeger $59 million to acquire MedSolutions. After considerable thought, Fleeger sold the company. Given his vast experience, Fleeger had no issue landing a job elsewhere. Gulf Coast Western, his family’s business, was where Fleeger settled. Currently the CEO of Gulf Coast Western, Fleeger still flexes his leadership muscles. When he’s not managing operations at Gulf Coast Western, Fleeger is finding new industries to invest in. The tanning industry piqued Fleeger’s interest, and he’s currently the affluent co-founder of two renowned tanning companies, Palm Beach Tan and Mystic Tan.
