Many people who know Anthony Petrello most probably recognize him for his input in the business sector. He is the Chief Executive Office of the leading oil and gas drilling company in the whole world known as Nabors Industries. Anthony Petrello joined the firm in 1991 as the chief operating officer of the mining firm. Since joining the company, he has been at the forefront in shaping the destiny of this firm.
By the time he joined it, it was never the biggest mining firm in the world. His role in the firm has been pivotal for the achievements it has realized so far. Since taking over as the CEO, the firm has recorded tremendous growth. It has been able to expand its business operations to all corners of the world. Today Nabors Industries has mining operations in America, Far East, Middle East and Africa. Nabors Industries has established itself as the number one provider of drilling services as well as the provider of best drilling rigs in the market.
Although his work at Nabors has had him receive accolades from all over, probably what is his shining moment currently is his role as a philanthropist. His charitable initiatives have far-reaching implications in terms of improving lives of people, especially those children suffering from neurological diseases. His contribution towards the establishment of the Neurological Research Center at the Texas Children’s Hospital has been one of its kind. Anthony together with his wife contributed $5 million towards its establishment with a promise of adding $2 million into the same project.
The Texas Neurological Research Center will go a long way in ensuring that children who suffer from Neurological related diseases are able to get proper medical care that will see them live like other healthy human beings. The research center is expected to come up with top-notch methods of treatment. The research center has incorporated some of the world’s best surgeons and doctors to ensure that this dream is accomplished.
This Research center is very personal to the lives of Petrello and his wife. They underwent a very challenging situation when their daughter was diagnosed with neurological disorder right after she was born. Their daughter was suffering from a condition known s Cerebral Palsy. They went around looking for the best medical facilities in the United States but they could not get a solution for the problem their daughter was suffering from. It is at this point that Petrello realized that there was limited research in this field. He then decided to focus his efforts towards establishment of a research center that would take care of these little ones.
