Tony Petrello is the chief executive officer of Nabors industries. He comes from a humble background but has worked hard to become one of the wealthiest men in the nation.
Tony has worked at Nabors Industries as the chief executive officer since 2011. Nabors Industries is a renowned oil and gas drilling company operating in the United States. Before his appointment as the chief executive officer, he served as the president of the company since 1991. Petrello first worked at the Baker & McKenzie law firm where he served as the managing partner after he graduated from Harvard University.
Tony was raised up in a humble community at Newark in New Jersey. He beat the odds and became a renowned scholar. Tony graduated with a postgraduate degree in mathematics from the University of Yale. His excellent performance at Yale earned him a scholarship and got the opportunity to be mentored by one of the best mathematicians. Tony, later on, changed his career from being a mathematician to law school. He joined the Harvard law school where he specialized in human science and graduated with juries’ doctor.
Tony Petrello has a heart of gold; he recently organized a grand welcoming cocktail party for Tommy Tune, Broadway star. The party was graced with several guests including the miller outdoor theatre advisory board, the Houston native and other guests.
As a philanthropist, Tony founded Yale scholarship. The scholarship is set to help bright students who come from humble families and could not afford to pay for their college fees. Apart from the scholarship foundation, Mr. Tony Petrello helped all employees who were affected by the hurricane Harvey. His company gave them a paid leave to help them recover from the hurricane. The Nabors Company also came up with a feeding program that ensured all the affected families could get hot meals three times in a day.
Tony and Cynthia Petrello were blessed with a baby girl, Carena more than eight years ago. It is always an expectation of parents to have a healthy baby, but unfortunately, Carena was born with a severe condition. She was born premature and was weighing 20 ounces, and due to the lack of enough blood and oxygen flow, she developed periventricular leukomalacia, which developed to cerebral palsy. Their efforts to find answers to their Childs chronic condition, made them work hand in hand with Texas children’s hospital Duncan neurological research institute. They donated 5 million dollars to the research foundation.
