Tony Petrello is no stranger to hard work and dedication. As one of the top paid CEO’s in the United States, today, some people are surprised to hear that he, himself, came from a humble starting place in life. Petrello grew up in Newark, New Jersey in a working class atmosphere and studied at the public schools in his area until he graduated from high school. He never backed down from speaking his mind about the issues and topics that were near and dear to his heart, and he excelled at mathematics. Eventually, Yale University recognized his amazing skills with a scholarship as well as a mentor-ship by Serge Lang, a well-known mathematician.
During his studies at Yale University, Tony Petrello studied mathematics but eventually decided to move on to study law. Students and teachers at Yale came to know Petrello as an outgoing guy with a great sense of humor. As an extroverted young man, he had no problem talking to people and getting to know them, and, in fact, while at Yale University, he met his wife, Cynthia. When he graduated from Yale with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree and a Master’s Degree, both, in Mathematics, people expected him to continue his studies as a mathematician, but instead, he decided to continue his studies at Harvard University. It was there that he earned his Juris Doctor and then moved on to get some real-world experience under his belt.
Tony Petrello’s first job was with Baker & McKenzie, a law firm based in the United States. While working at Baker & McKenzie, he had worked with a client named Nabors Industries, and this would prove to be fate, because they were so impressed with him that they eventually hired him on to work with them. It didn’t happen overnight, and, in fact, Nabors had to woo Petrello for quite some time before he was convinced to join them. Eventually he did join the company, and he moved to Texas where Nabors Industries was based.
Anthony Petrello has earned more money for Nabors Industries than the company ever could have imagined he would. On top of this, Tony Petrello has become a very generous giver that helped people out during Hurricane Harvey, has donated large sums of money to help out children who suffer with neurological conditions, and has supported the arts and culture of Texas in many different ways.
