Anthony Petrello- Leader, Philanthropist and Father

Anthony Petrello, current CEO of Nabors Industries Ltd. has served in leadership roles in the company since 1991. He began by being elected to the Board of Directors, and to the Executive Committee in 1991, and has served as the COO and President in the same year, as the Deputy Chairman since 2003, and continuing as President, became chairman of both the Board and Executive Committee. Prior to that, from 1979 to 1991, he served as the Managing Partner of Baker and McKenzie Law Firm’s New York office, where he specialized in international arbitration, corporate law, and taxation, a perfect background for the leadership roles he has taken on in companies since then, such as his role as Director at Stewart & Stevenson, LLC. He holds a Juris Doctor from Harvard Law School, and a Masters and Bachelor’s Degrees in Mathematics from Yale University.

Mr. Petrello holds three Board Memberships: Nabors Industries Chairman of the Board and CEO; Director of Stewart & Stevenson, LCC since 2011, and Director of the Board of Texas Children’s Hospital, Inc. Anthony Petrello and his wife Cynthia have committed $7 million to the hospital’s Neurological Research Institute, to ensure that children with neurological and developmental conditions can reach their full potential.

Their daughter Carena was born barely past the gestational age of viability and drastically underweight, and was diagnosed with periventricular leukomalacia, a common defect in premature children due to inadequate oxygenation or blood flow to the brain. Consequentially, she developed cerebral palsy, and other developmental disorders. Per Texas Children’s Hospital website, the Petrollo’s investigated pediatric research institutions around the country and abroad, and found that none of them were conducting research that would make any difference in these children’s lives. They have committed the $5 million upfront, and $2 million to come, for the Neurological institute to ensure that this research is done, not only for Carena, but for all children like her.
