A Short Backdrop of Tony Petrello, Who He Is, How He Became Successful, and Where He is Today
Nabors Industries, Ltd., is currently one of the world’s largest energy corporations, raking in a net income in excess of $141.7 million in fiscal year 2014 from revenues of $6.23 billion. The well-established, worldwide, highly successful organization is traded on the world’s most popular public stock exchange – New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) – and is also a member of the industry-leading S&P 400 Component index fund. To build onto Nabors Industries’ already high levels of success, the organization conducts drilling operations on every continent with the exception of Antarctica, not to mention several offshore rigs in various oceans surrounding the globe.
Nabors wouldn’t be anywhere its current financial standing without its longtime CEO, Tony Petrello. Tony’s career began to rapidly trend upwards in the late 1970s, in which he joined one of New York state’s largest law firms, Baker & Mckenzie. In 1986, Mr. Petrello was named the colloquial “top dog” of the internationally-operating law firm, with the formal title of Managing Partner. He remained in that position for five years, immediately after leaving the practice of law to join Nabors Industries in multiple capacities: member of the Board of Directors, Executive Committee of the Board, President, and Chief Operating Officer.
As he continually proved his success at the energy giant, he moved into the role of Deputy Chairman in 2003, Chief Executive Officer in 2011, and Chairman of the Board and Chairman of the Executive Committee in 2012. Tony Petrello has held these four positions since his appointment, proving himself as one of the top corporate executives in the United States of America and more information click here.
Prior to his appointment to the diverse cornucopia of positions at Nabors, Petrello attended college at two schools in the northeast United States: Harvard and Yale. Tony first attended Yale University, where he studied math as an undergraduate student. Immediately following graduation, he moved into the master’s program in the same study. Possessing a true desire for excelling in academia, he decided to apply to Harvard Law School in hopes of earning a juris doctorate degree – Mr. Petrello was accepted his first time around, finishing up his college career three years later and learn more about Petrello.
