A sharp-witted businessman of undeniable ambition, Matthew Fleeger is the exemplar of an enterprising entrepreneur. Growing up, Fleeger marveled at his father’s entrepreneurial skills and industry excellence. Fleeger’s father, the founder of an illustrious oil and gas company, no doubt inspired Fleeger to embark on his own business pursuits. After attending Southern Methodist University, Fleeger did just that when he immersed himself in his desired line of work. With his insight into finance and marketing affairs, Fleeger was destined to make it big in his industry.
From 1986 to 1993, Fleeger vowed to accept every opportunity that came his way. As a result, he gained substantial knowledge of the ins and outs of the oil and gas industry. Fleeger was so schooled in the dynamics of his field that he felt poised to venture out on his own. In 1993, Fleeger became the entrepreneur he was destined to be when he established his oil and gas organization, MedSolutions. MedSolutions is best described as a diversified holding company specializing in the treatment and disposal of waste that healthcare establishments leave behind. Fleeger’s eminence shone so brightly that MedSolutions propelled to the forefront of the industry.
After 14 years at the company, Fleeger received an offer from Stericycle, a compliance company offering disposal services. When Stericycle offered Fleeger $59 million for his organization, Fleeger promptly accepted and parted ways with Med Solutions. Soon thereafter, Fleeger returned to his roots and began working for Gulf Coast Western, the company his father founded in 1970. Currently the company’s CEO, Fleeger excels at the helm. In an effort to diversify himself, Fleeger explored burgeoning industries. According to Fleeger, the tanning industry has always shown promise. With that said, it comes as no surprise that Fleeger co-founded two of the largest tanning entities on the market, Mystic Tan and Palm Beach Tan.
