Honing his entrepreneurial skills at a tender age, Matthew Fleeger is a keen businessman of lofty ambitions. Much like his father, Fleeger was destined to hit it big in the business realm. Growing up, Fleeger watched as his father shrewdly navigated the ins and outs of business affairs, eventually creating the family business, Gulf Coast Western, in 1970. No doubt inspired by his dad’s exploits, Fleeger vowed to echo his father’s entrepreneurial success by creating a company of his own. Fleeger did just that when he single-handedly established MedSolutions, a waste management company.
Upon its inception, MedSolutions moved mountains in the healthcare waste management industry. Between Fleeger’s novel initiatives and the company’s well-oiled operations, MedSolutions was on the up and up. MedSolutions grew by such leaps and bounds that the company was honored the title of “regional leader in healthcare waste management.” In essence, MedSolutions provided safe solutions to the disposal and treatment of unwanted materials left behind by healthcare establishments. While at the helm of operations, Fleeger sharpened his leadership skills, subsequently becoming a stalwart in his domain. After 14 successful years at the company, Fleeger made the savvy decision to sell MedSolutions to Stericycle for upwards of $60 million.
Following his departure, Fleeger had a world of opportunities awaiting him. He ultimately decided to return to his family’s business and demonstrate his prowess as a leader. Presently the CEO of Gulf Coast Western, Fleeger ensures that systems are smooth-running and efficient. In addition to governing operations at Gulf Coast Western, Fleeger is also fully invested in the tanning industry. In fact, he’s the co-founder of two prominent tanning franchises, Mystic Tan and Palm Beach Tan. Matthew Fleeger continually involves himself in domains that show promise. As a result, enduring success inevitably follows.
