Matthew Fleeger’s industrious disposition manifested at a tender age. Upon discovering his penchant for business affairs, Fleeger earned sufficient knowledge on his desired trade before immersing himself in the business realm. After graduating from the Southern Methodist University, Fleeger was champing at the bit to acquire some experience in the oil and gas industry. Fleeger’s father, the owner of an oil and gas industry, likely inspired Fleeger’s intrigue for this field. In 1983, when Fleeger took his first job at a Texas-based oil company, his merit became evident. Before too long, Fleeger earned executive positions from respectable organizations.
From 1986 to 1993, Fleeger navigated the ins and outs of his trade before embarking on a venture of his own. After seven years of honing his craft, Fleeger developed a medical waste company, MedSolutions. MedSolutions proved a wildly successful enterprise, subsequently bringing Fleeger into great repute. Now a prominent figure in the realm of healthcare waste management, Fleeger had reached the pinnacle of his career. 14 years later, Fleeger made the bittersweet decision to sell MedSolutions. Stericycle, a company specializing in the disposal of regulated waste, gave Fleeger an offer he couldn’t refuse, and he sold the company for $59 million.
After bidding his organization a fond farewell, Fleeger had a wealth of opportunities at his disposal. However, working for his father’s company, Gulf Coast Western, seemed a promising prospect. Given his years of industry experience, Fleeger was promptly appointed CEO of the company. In addition to overseeing Gulf Coast Western’s operations, Fleeger is also actively involved in the tanning industry. Palm Beach Tan and Mystic Tan are two tanning franchises Fleeger co-created, with each exceeding $100 million in revenue. Though the tanning and oil industries are vastly different, Fleeger enjoys exploring varying facets of business.
