A household name in the oil and gas industry, Matthew Fleeger is worth his salt. Fleeger’s father, a renowned business owner, was likely the catalyst for Fleeger’s entrepreneurial pursuits. Like most businesspeople, Fleeger pursued a college career before delving into the business realm. Southern Methodist University was where Fleeger earned his degree, subsequently graduating and immersing himself in the oil and gas industry. 1986 marked the beginning of Fleeger’s career, and it was during this juncture when Fleeger realized his aptitude for business affairs. Fleeger continued to hone his skills before eventually becoming an executive at various corporations.
Fleeger’s time at the helm proved thrilling and rewarding, but he was ready to branch out on his own come 1993. In the hopes of applying his entrepreneurial knowledge, Fleeger endeavored to create a medical waste management company. Before too long, Fleeger’s aspirations materialized, and MedSolutions was born. The arrival of MedSolutions proved advantageous to both the industry and Fleeger’s career. Fleeger’s novel concepts drove the company to success, and in 2007, Fleeger was offered a handsome sum of money for his enterprise. Stericycle was the company that expressed interest in acquiring MedSolutions, and Fleeger eventually accepted their offer of $59 million.
With Fleeger no longer at the company, the opportunities awaiting him were endless. Given his expertise in seemingly every aspect of business, Fleeger could have pursued any avenue. Fleeger decided that a job at his father’s company, Gulf Coast Western, was the best choice. Fleeger was immediately offered the position of CEO, and it’s a title that he still holds. Being the diverse businessman he is, Fleeger often takes a vested interest in burgeoning industries. Tanning is one such domain. Currently, Fleeger is the lucrative co-owner of two prominent tanning franchises, Mystic Tan and Palm Beach Tan.
