Currently, Anthony Petrello is a CEO of Nabors Industries LTd., since 2011 and since 1991, its president. This is a holding company of Nabors Exchangeco (Canada) Inc. Nabors Industries happens to be the largest land-based oil and gas-drilling contractor.
Anthony Petrello is a well-educated man who obtained his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Mathematics from Yale University. Later, he would attend Harvard Law and receive a J.D.
Recently, Lloyd Grove, who was Petrello’s old college roommate, published a story in The Daily Beast describing Petrello as a mathematical genius, something akin to the character Will Hunting from the movie, Good Will Hunting. Unlike many other students who attended Yale, Tony stood out. Lloyd describes Tony as working class, with a scholarship, complete with a Jersey accent. He liked to joke around and happened to be quite extroverted.
Instead of continuing on in the field of mathematics, Petrello decided to take on law school at Harvard. After law school, he would move to a Manhattan law firm, Baker & McKenzie (1979-1991).
Petrello would also decide to marry Cynthia Carrafa, who was a college girlfriend and also a soap opera actress. They eventually had a daughter, Carena, who was born with periventricular leukomalacia (PVL). Their own family’s struggle prompted them to help others, and have donated $7 million to Texas Children’s Hospital Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute.
Petrello also serves as a Director of Texas Children’s Hospital, Inc. In addition to that role, he also serves as Director of Stewart & Stevenson, LLC.
