A mover and shaker in the oil and gas industry, Matthew Fleeger is a budding businessperson turned established entrepreneur. Embarking on his career fresh out of college, Fleeger earned a degree from Southern Methodist University before cementing his eminence in his field. In the hopes of developing a keen understanding of his trade, Fleeger pursued numerous opportunities while his career was in its infancy. From entry-level jobs to executive positions, Fleeger mounted the industry ladder with grace. The information he’d gleaned from his vast experience played a large part in helping Fleeger establish his own corporation.
In 1993, after seven years in his industry, Fleeger took the ultimate leap when he founded MedSolutions, a disposal and treatment company. In essence, Fleeger’s corporation was responsible for the management of waste that healthcare facilities neglected to dispose of. As time progressed, MedSolutions became a regional leader in the healthcare waste management industry. With that said, the company was utterly thriving under Fleeger’s sage counsel. The organization grew by such leaps and bounds that other disposal corporations were keen to acquire Fleeger’s top-tier industry. In 2007, Fleeger received a proposal that would soon change the course of his career.
Stericycle, a company responsible for the collection of waste, offered Fleeger a handsome sum in exchange for ownership of MedSolutions. After some tough negotiating, Fleeger sold MedSolutions for nearly $60 million. No doubt a savvy business move, Fleeger left the company with exceedingly deep pockets. Once Fleeger parted ways with MedSolutions, he began working for his family’s company, Gulf Coast Western. Given Fleeger’s experience as a leader, his father appointed him CEO. Though Fleeger is currently at the helm of operations, he dedicates time to investing in promising industries as well. Some other undertakings Fleeger’s known for include co-founding Palm Beach Tan and Mystic Tan.
