A businessman of abundant enterprise and sharp intellect, Matthew Fleeger is a prominent figure in the oil and gas industry. Much like any entrepreneur, Fleeger had to prove his merit before ascending through the ranks of his domain. Growing up, Fleeger watched his father develop, execute, and navigate business pursuits. As the son of an illustrious entrepreneur, Fleeger was inspired to echo his father’s success. After attending the Southern Methodist University, where Fleeger gained insight on financial and marketing affairs, Fleeger was ready to explore the vast business world.
1986 marks the beginning of Fleeger’s career. Although he began in entry-level positions, Fleeger’s gumption enabled him to propel to the forefront of his industry. Before too long, Fleeger was assuming executive roles. After seven years of working in his field, Fleeger felt confident in his entrepreneurial abilities. Come 1993, Fleeger was the owner of his own medical waste company, MedSolutions. MedSolutions, an organization aimed at adequately treating medical waste, became the yardstick for excellence in the waste management sphere. Though Fleeger basked in the splendors of entrepreneurship, he eventually sold the company to Stericycle for nearly $60 million.
When Fleeger severed ties with MedSolutions, he took a position at Gulf Coast Western, the oil and gas company his father pioneered years ago. With sufficient experience under his belt, Fleeger was appointed CEO immediately upon arrival. Fleeger’s expertise in corporate structuring, acquisitions, and professional partnerships made him the perfect candidate for this role. Though Fleeger is still at the helm of Gulf Coast Western, he’s also the co-creator of two renowned tanning franchises, Palm Beach Tan and Mystic Tan. Fleeger’s keen eye for up-and-coming industries prompted him to take an active interest in this realm. Fortunately, his intuition was right on the money, and both organizations have a combined revenue of $100 million.
