All Quiet On the Western Front According To Matt Fleeger
Oil is big business for our country, and, by extension, other countries too. Some people get blinded by the money the oil brings that the remain blindly loyal to anyone who cuts the check.
However, on the Western front, particularly, the Gulf Coast, Matt Fleeger is changing that. Gulf Coast Western LLC has been in business for a long time, where Matt Fleeger serves as President and CEO. What makes the company different, and, by extension, Matt Fleeger is the relationship he has with the company and the customers they serve.
“We believe in openness and full transparency. That is something you do not find too much with the oil and gas industries. People are too concerned with making money. The more money they may, the happier and richer they are. I feel that takes away from the core relationship we should be having with our loyal customers. You can make money and remain transparent at the same time. It requires a bit of honesty on everyone’s part. Oil is not just about who cuts the check. It is so much more than that.”
The story of his company started back in Texas, back in the early ’70s. It was a family business, and it remains that way to this day.
They believe in family. It does not matter how much the company has expanded over the years, with locations in Texas, Colorado, and Mississippi. Matt Fleeger has said the company has seen its fair share of storms, including two partnerships.
Matt feels strongly about team-building and the core values that have led them this far. They may be worth more than $100 million, but Matt says the company still feels the same way it did when it first began.
Matt feels that the emphasis on family has helped them to steer clear of some of the pitfalls the oil industry attracts.
“People do get led astray by the money. Greed has a terrible way of making people do the wrong things. Thankfully, we are all quiet on the western front.
