Anthony Petrello is the president and CEO of the Nabors firm, a position he assumed since back in 2011. Nabors, which is a global oil, geothermal and natural gas drilling company, has seen substantial growth thanks to the plausible leadership experience and skills of Mr. Petrello.
Apart from sitting at the executive helm of the Nabors, he also serves as the chairman of the firm’s Board and chairman of the Executive Committee of the board. He joined the firm when he was appointed to the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee of the board back in 1991. Since then, he has held several coveted positions in the firm including his tenure as the COO and the Deputy Chairman of the Board. He is mainly tasked with the executive duty of offering strategic direction as well as planning, which has seen the company adapt and prosper in the volatile dynamic competitive business environment.

Tony Petrello‘s career path is one decorated with numerous achievements both in the academic and practical world. He worked for a Law firm named ‘Baker & McKenzie’ before joining Nabors in 1991. His practice at the firm focused mainly on matters relation to taxation, international arbitration and general corporate Law. The Juris Doctor Degree graduate from the Harvard Law School also has B.S and M.S degrees in Mathematics from the prestigious Yale University.
Steering Nabors to expand its operations and subsequently spreading its focus to the global market, the firm accumulated massive profit margins. The milestone saw Petrello’s earning increased hugely, making him the best paid CEO in 2013. This was also expected in 2014 but due to the firm’s change of its corporate governance and compensation practices, which separated roles of the Chairman and CEO, his earnings were reduced making him fall off the ladder as the top paid CEO in the country in 2014.
