Nabors Industries Ltd is one of the largest oil and gas drilling companies in the world. Located in Hamilton, Bermuda, Nabors Industries is a multi-billion dollar firm that earned $3.5 billion dollars in 2009. The company offers drilling services, oil rigs, and support services to companies all over the world.
As the former COO, the current CEO, and the Chairman of the Board of Nabors Industries, Mr. Anthony Petrello has consistently been a role model and a key figure within the company. In 2011, Anthony replaced former CEO Eugene Isenberg to re-stabilize the company. Presently, he is in charge of over 26,000 employees of the enterprise.
Anthony graduated from Yale University with a bachelor’s and a master’s degree. He also holds a J.D. that he earned from Harvard School of Law. Before he joined Nabors Industries, Tony owned a law firm that specialized in corporate law and international arbitration. The experience he acquired as the Managing Partner at Baker and McKenzie law firms from 1979 to 1991 has made him take Nabors Industries to higher ranks of a global leader in the natural energy sector.
In addition to his success in the business community, Antony has been active in charitable endeavors. He serves as a member of the Board of Trustees of Texas Children’s Hospital. His philanthropic work seems to stem from his daughter’s battle with cerebral palsy. Carena, Tony’s daughter, was diagnosed with periventricular leukomalacia, a condition she developed after she was born prematurely. Despite the challenge, Tony still stands out as an great corporate leader.
