Tony Petrello: College Years and Beyond

Tony Petrello is currently the CEO, President and Chairman of Nabors Industries, the largest land based oil and gas drilling contractor in the world. In 2015 he earned $68.2 million in compensation.

A few years ago, his college roommate wrote a comical look at who Petrello was in college. He describes him as a skinny public school kid that came from a working class family and attended Yale on scholarship. He jokes that he had a thick Jersey accent, was quite loud and had a boasting Italian-American demeanor that stood out among the reserved, WASPs of Yale. Aside from physical description, he describes him as an incredibly gifted math “whiz” who was an obvious genius even at the young age of 18.

He went on to work at the elite law firm of Baker & McKenzie, where he eventually moved up the ranks to be appointed as managing partner. From there, Petrello was wooed away by Nabors Industries, which was one of Baker & McKenzie’s largest clients. He moved to Houston to become president and Chief Operating Officer of Nabors in 1991. By 2011, he had moved up to hold the three titles he has today: President, CEO and Chairman of the Board. Click here to know more.

Tony and Cynthia took it as their personal mission to bring advancements in child neurological research to their backyard in Texas and the two worked diligently with the Texas Children’s Institute Center for Neurological Research to raise money, awareness and, most importantly, to bring in advanced research. To date, the couple has donated $7 million dollars as well as led the charge in the Texas community to raise even more funds and awareness.
