Anthony G. Petrello, also known as Tony, is the CEO, Chairman of the Board, and President of Nabors Industries Ltd. Mr. Petrello graduated from Harvard University accepting a J.D. Degree. He also graduated from Yale University accepting a Bachelors and Masters degree in Mathematics. He began his profession in 1979 by joining Baker and Mackenzie, a law firm in New York City. Tony was known as the Managing Partner for the firm from 1986-1991. Tony Petrello joined Nabors Industries in 1991, as the role of Chief Operating Officer (CEO), and one year later became President of the company. He provides planning and direction in order to keep the company striving in a competitive environment. Petrello has compensated what some would call millions of dollars. As of 2015, he has compensated over $27,500,000, of which $1.5 million was salary and $7.7 million was bonus income.

Nabors Industries assures that things move right along in a great direction. They always are on their toes to keep everyone as happy as possible with little complaints. Mr. Lloyd Grove remembers Petrello as his “18-year-old college roommate math whiz.” Grove states he came across a “highest paid” list, and the number 1 spot seemed oh-so familiar to him. As Grove browses through different websites, he comes to the realization that the number 1 spot was indeed his college roommate, Petrello! Questioning himself, “where did I go wrong?”, he gets an email from Petrello with wise words of wisdom, “.. being smart or being lucky, lucky is better.” Anthony’s daughter, who was born at 24 weeks, was diagnosed with PVL, which could be from lack of blood or oxygen to the brain. As a result of PVL, she developed Cerebal Palsy. Petrello and his wife, Cynthia have donated more than $7 million dollars to help patients at the Texas Children’s hospital, as well as helping researchers at Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute find answers to diagnosis with no cures.
