Matthew Fleeger is the CEO, President, and Director of Gulf Coast Western, LLC. He has extensive experience in the gas and oil industry and served as the Vice-President of Kinlaw Oil Company from 1990 to 1993. Mr Fleeger has also served as a director of both Medsolutions, Inc. and Palm Beach Tan, Inc.
Mr Fleeger graduated from Southern Methodist University (SMU) where he received his undergraduate degree in business. His time at SMU also gave him the opportunity to research both finance and marketing. These fields were crucial to learning how to be a skilled business executive.
After entering the work force, Mr Fleeger worked at several companies around the state of Texas including Gulf Coast Western, the company first created by his father. These early years of experience would be crucial in helping him run additional companies within the oil and gas industry. Part of that experience came from Mr Fleeger’s work in Medsolutions, Inc.
Medsolutions, Inc. is a medical waste identification, transportation, and disposal company that was created by Mr Fleeger in 1993. Over the next 14 years, Mr Fleeger took the company from a small-scale operation to one of the region’s largest businesses in the management of waste from the healthcare industry. He later sold the company to Stericycle, Inc. for about $59 million.
After his time at Medsolutions, Mr Fleeger returned to Gulf Coast Western as the President and CEO where he serves to this day. He has also created two new businesses in the tanning industry: Palm Beach Tan and Mystic Tan. Together these companies generate revenue of close to $100 million. Mr Fleeger hopes to continue to bring his companies to greater success in the future.
