Tony Petrello is known as many things: a titan of business, one of the most powerful men in the oil drilling industry, an astute learner and a philanthropist to his community. The trajectory that brought him to a level where he has earned over 15 million dollars in 2016 has been one paved with hard work dedication. He originally studied mathematics and earned a bachelors degree and masters degree from Yale. During his time at Yale, his former roommate described him as incredibly dedicated to his studies and to his work. His roommate remembers him as a reserved man that was highly focused on success and the future – all attributes that he is still known for today. After graduating from Yale, Petrello went to Harvard law school where he obtained his J.D. From there he went on to work with a highly successful law firm and specialized in tax litigation international arbitration. He was promoted to managing partner of the firm’s elite New York office where he excelled and brought the office to great heights.
In 1991, Petrello left law career and joined Nabors Industries LLC. He served for over 10 years as Chairman of the Board and Chief operating officer. This tenure proved his success, as Nabors grew from being a major player in the oil and gas drilling industry to being the top player and the top name in the industry. Tony Petrello currently is the Chief Executive Officer, President and Chairman of the Board for Nabors industries, and shows no sign of slowing down. Petrello serves as leader for other companies, including working as the Director for Stewart & Stevenson – another major player in the oil industry.
He was voted as one of the “best paid bosses.” However, he is proud that he will not be voted to the best paid bosses list again, as his he has dedicated a large part of his focus on dedicating himself to Neurological research as he sits on the board of Texas Children’s Institute.
