Anthony “Tony” Petrello is one of America’s most popular and most successful businesspeople, best known for his current long-standing tenure with the energy giant Nabors Industries. Mr. Petrello had taken over at Nabors just a few years after they rebranded their organization, after failing quite roughly in 1987. Tony had joined the energy conglomerate in 1991, just four years after a burnout that very well could have spelled the end of the corporation’s streak of general success, barring that bad period in the middle of the 1980s. How did Mr. Petrello get to this point, however?
Mr. Anthony Petrello earned two degrees from the highly successfully Yale University, both in math. He had first earned a bachelor’s degree in only three years of schooling, far faster than the vast majority of people that go to university in the United States, let alone those who were fortunate enough to attend an Ivy League school. Following graduation, he was able to attend Harvard Law Firm, where he started his career as an attorney by earning a juris doctorate and learn more about Anthony.
Tony Petrello is also known for contributing to charities, in particular the Texas Children’s Hospital. This hospital is part of Baylor University’s College of Medicine, as well as the largest hospital designed solely for children in the Lone Star state, not to mention the entire continent of North America. He and his wife, Cynthia, donated a little more than seven million dollars to the brain research facility there, formally known as the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute. Mr. Petrello has always been interested in neurological research since his daughter was born with a condition called PVL, or in medial terms, periventricular leukomalacia, a condition that affected his daughter, Carena, even before she was born. The baby was born extremely prematurely at only 24 weeks and less than 1.5 pounds. Tony is very glad is daughter is alive today, and is doing great things to help cure brain issues like hers, as Mr. Petrello also serves as the Director of the Board at the Texas Children’s Hospital and more information click here.
