Tony has a Juris Doctor Degree and a Masters in Mathematics. He’s known for his great leadership and communications skills. Mr. Petrello currently serves as the CEO, chairman, and president of Nabors Industries.
At the beginning of his career, Anthony worked as a managing director at Becky & Mackenzie’s law firm. His position at the company allowed him to build connections with top business leaders from other firms. In 1991, Petrello was elected into Nabors’ board as a director. He was appointed the VP of the company because he helped Nabors Industries achieve a lot when he acted as the chief operating officer. Many of Tony’s friends expected his appointment as the company’s CEO because he’s a hardworking man.
Petrello took office as the chief executive officer of Nabors after Eugene Isenberg resigned from the position. Although this office came with more responsibilities, Tony was determined to lead the company. He believed he was qualified for the job. Since Mr. Petrello had served in various positions, he had acquired enough skill and knowledge to help him oversee all the operations of the firm. What’s more, he worked closely with Isenberg. Therefore, he had learned how to develop strategies and implement them to improve the sales and profits of Nabors Industries.
Together with his wife, Cynthia, Tony participates in a number of charitable activities. The couple has partnered with the Jan and Dan Research Institute to try and discover treatments for cerebral palsy. His daughter, who was born with a rare disorder, has inspired him to fund institutions that carry out medical research. Mr. Petrello also donates to the Texas Children Hospital. He believes the less fortunate should receive quality healthcare –just like those who are well-off.
