Anthony Petrello is known as an extremely successful business leader. He is the Chief Executive Officer, President and Director of the Board for Nabors Industries. Nabors is a massive company that is a leader in providing drilling equipment. They work in every major drilling region of the world and have a foothold on nearly every continent.
The drilling industry is hugely competitive and gaining market share is often an extremely hard thing to do. Drilling clients tend to not change companies frequently due to the huge amount of effort and manpower it takes to change vendors. It is often hard to grow a company that provides equipment to established drillers.
However, Anthony Petrello has a passion and a talent for business development. Through his leadership and strategic planning roles he has helped Nabors Industries continue to grab more and more market share and to grow their client base rapidly across the globe.
Outside of his work with Nabors he volunteers his time and energy to help incubate other businesses and provide strategic guidance. He is currently working as the Director for established drilling companies Hilcorp Energy and Stewart & Stevenson LLC.
Anthony Petrello is also a well known philanthropist in the Houston Community and is greatly admitted for the work he has done in the medical realm. Both he and his wife are highly involved with the Texas Children’s Hospital where Petrello is a member of the Board of Trustees. He and his wife have donated over $7 million to the Texas Children’s Hospitals neurological institute. They are both passionate about advocating for children with neurological disorders and advocating for research and clinical trials to help treat those disorders and provide a better quality of life.
Anthony Petrello and his wife were high school sweethearts. The two had a child that was born with a neurological condition that hindered her development. The two work tirelessly to give their daughter the best quality of life. The couple knew that as blessed as they were, it was their duty to give back to the continued research initiatives for children with neurological disorders.
He and his wife, Cindy, not only donate funds to neurological research but lead others to donate as well. They also volunteer their time and energy to Texas Children’s Hospital.
Anthony Petrello is incredibly well admired both in the business world and in the world of philanthropy, especially as it related to their work in a medical capacity.
