Matthew Fleeger: The Top Executive
Coming from a family with background in the oil business, Matthew Fleeger cemented and consolidated his position as one of the best CEO’s and business men in oil and gas as well as waste management and the tanning industry. With His father being the pioneer of the Gulf Coast Western, (one of the more successful oil and gas companies of the 1970’s) Matthew felt the urge to follow in his father’s footsteps studying Business for his undergraduate degree while he pursued his innate passion for finance and marketing.
The knowledge he got from those branches became useful for him after graduation as he got introduced to the oil and gas sector. As an child of the industry, Matthew started working in executive positions for oil companies including his father’s company (Gulf Coast Western) between the years 1986 and 1990. He later went on to start his own company MedSolutions Inc, a firm diverse in functionality, from the treatment of medical waste to its transportation and disposal. He proved his leadership skill and experience as he took his company to the top of the regional ladder in medical waste management, holding several executive positions in the process.
The successes of MedSolutions Inc caught the eye of the industry leader, leading to the sale of the company to Stericycle for $59 million highlighting the sales and marketing expertise of Matthew Fleeger. After selling the company, Matt Fleeger returned to the oil and gas industry to lead Gulf Coast Western becoming the president and CEO of the firm for the progressive future. The company had become one of the biggest oil companies interested in internal oil reserves around gulf regions and his experience in corporate actions like mergers, partnership and purchase amongst others, made him the ideal candidate to lead the firm forward.
