Matthew Fleeger is a well-known man in the gas and oil, tanning, and waste management sectors. He never had anything handed to him, but, instead, had to work very hard for everything he has now. Fleeger received his undergraduate degree in business while studying at Southern Methodist University. During his studies, he also learned more about marketing and finance, which were skills he figured would be useful in his career.
Once Matthew Fleeger graduated from college, he went to work in the oil and gas sector. He first worked for many different companies in Texas including Gulf Coast Wester, which is a company that his father founded. In 1993, he started up his own company named MedSolutions, Inc, which is a diversified holding company that focused on the health care industry and, more specifically, the sector’s disposal, transportation, and medical waste treatment needs.
Due to his stable leadership skills, Matthew Fleeger was able to expand the company until it became a leader in its region. During his time with the company, he served as its chief executive officer, chairman, and president until he sold it to Stericycle for roughly $59 million. After the sale of his company, he decided to get back to work in the gas and oil industry and quickly became the chief executive officer and president of Gulf Coast Wester. The skills he had acquired over the years have been extremely helpful to him in this endeavour.
Matthew Fleeger has also built a couple of other businesses that have been very successful. These are both in the tanning sector and are worth a combined amount of $100 million. It was his hard work and industry savvy that led to the creation of Palm Beach Tan, which is now one of the largest indoor tanning companies in the United States.
