Anthony Petrello, superhero CEO

Successful people come from all walks of life, whether they were born with a silver spoon in their mouth or their family struggled to keep food on the table. Everyone has an interesting story. It’s really what you do with your circumstances that shapes you as a person.

Yale University educated CEO Tony Petrello has a heart of gold. He was not born into riches and his family struggled to stay afloat during his youth. Even though Anthony’s childhood was not lavished in opportunities and gifts, he worked incredibly hard to make a better life for himself and his family. He had a knack for mathematics that blew everyone away including Serge Lang the well known mathematics theorist who believed in his potential. They worked together for a period of time on very complex math matters that would have anyone’s head spinning. This was at Yale University when Anthony Petrello received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Mathematics. Unfortunately his interest in the complicated system was waning so he moved on to another field of study. Mr. Petrello would study human sciences and law at Harvard Law School where he got his Juris Doctor. This seemed to suit him better and he enjoyed a long career focusing more on people than math.

Later Anthony got a fantastic job at Nabors Drilling Industries that would span over 30 years. With hard work and persistence Mr. Petrello worked his way up to eventually become Chief Executive Officer at Nabors. He was even noted to be the best paid CEO in the U.S. Not too shabby for a man who wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He and his wife (who he met in college) even donates millions of dollars each year to their favorite charitable causes. He has done so much for the company including thousands of employees. Even though he is very well paid, it mostly comes from the revenue of Nabors. That means if the company’s revenue drops, his income does too. He is not a greedy individual that takes from employees to fund his own lavish lifestyle. Their 100,000 employees get paid a high wages due to their 1,050 rigs. Because he treats his employees with great pay and respect, they look up to him as a leader. His long list of accomplishments in life are purely incredible and have touched all the people around him.
