Matthew Fleeger is a giant in the oil and gas industry, and is ranked among others of high status listed in the International Who’s Who of Business Professionals. He didn’t get to be in the position he is today, overnight, but had a good education and experience gathered from working for others, and for himself.
Matthew attended Southern Methodist University, getting his BA in Business, but specifically focused on fiance and marketing. Upon obtaining his degree Matthew went to work for his father at Gulf Coast Western, a successful oil and gas company, formed in 1970. Fleeger worked for several Texas based companies, including Gulf Coast Western, gaining much needed experience, from 1986 to 1993.
In 1993, Matthew formed his own company, MedSolutions, which specialized in disposal, treatment, and transportation of medical waste from healthcare facilities such as hospitals and clinics. Over a decade with the MedSolutions, Fleeger made it the regional leader in healthcare waste management. He was the company’s CEO, Chairman/Directory, and President between 1993 and 2007. Stericycle, Inc. became interested in MedSolutions and Fleeger sold the business for roughly $59 million, proving beyond a shadow of a doubt, Matthew had both the skills and experience to be successful.
After the sale of MedSolutions, Matthew returned to the oil and gas industry by becoming President and CEO of Gulf Coast Western. Gulf Coast Western operates out of the Gulf Coast region, primarily focused on domestic oil and gas reserves there. With his experience, education, and leadership, Fleeger and Gulf Coast Western will continue to grow and be successful.
Matthew Fleeger has had an interest in the tanning industry as well as oil and gas. He founded Palm Beach Tan, which is now one of the considerable tanning operators in the region, and Mystic Tan, a spray-on tanning booth business, one of the largest in the world.
