Nabors CEO, Anthony Petrello

The Hurricane Harvey that happened in 2017 left many families homeless by destroying their shelters. Streets became inaccessible as they were flooded and infrastructure got destroyed. The hard hit Houston and Texas areas were able to receive prompt relief from charitable organizations. Led by its CEO Antony Petrello, who is passionate about charity, Nabors Industry was not left behind.

The company offered relief through cooking in large production for the affected families. Apart from being in the kitchen, Nabors employees were always available when their services were needed during the operation. In addition, the company and its CEO donated some substantial amount of money towards the relief. This is one way of Nabors Industries giving back to the community.

Tony Petrello is socially responsible and takes philanthropic works seriously. He and his wife Cynthia loves donating together. They have donated generously towards the treatment of neurological orders and their efforts have seen Texas Children Hospital launch Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute. The institution has been working on new developments on this treatment and Tony believes that it is almost finding the cure.


As a mathematician, Tony values education and the professors who teach students to becoming better persons in the future. One of his most remarkable contributions to the heroes of education was the honorable sendoff he donated towards the burial of his former mathematics professor at the University of Yale. He was among the Yale University alumni that contributed handsomely which also motivated other alumni in contributing towards the same.

As Nabors Industries grow, Tony has made it an objective to grow the charitable donations as well. He believes that charity should grow and those benefiting from it should also experience consistence in relief.

Antony came from a poor family but through determination and hard work, he has been able to become one of the most successful people at the United States. Although he had an outstanding intelligence in mathematics, Tony did not pursue it in his future life but instead, he opted to practice his Law field.

He is that kind of leader that does not benefit in the expense of others. He believes in equality and honesty. In his term as the CEO at the Nabors Industries and among the topmost paid at the United States, Tony is quick to argue that his salary should not be fixed but should change as the profits of the company changes. That is a decline in the profits would translate to a reduction of his salary. This is almost impossible to hear from leaders of his caliber but well, he makes it possible.
