In his chosen hometown of Houston, Tony Petrello, CEO of Nabors Industries, is known for more than just his entrepreneurial skills. Petrello is also known for encouraging and contributing to the culture of charity and lending a helping hand at Nabors Industries.
In October 2017, Houston and the surrounding area was victim to one of the largest natural disasters Texas has seen in the last 20 years when Hurricane Harvey hit. As part of the culture of helping at Nabors Industries, Petrello helped to provide labor and resources so that Houston and its citizens could rebuild.
Through Nabors Industries he used his resources and influence to help by encouraging and allowing employees to take paid time off in order to donate their time and energy to hurricane rebuilding and relief effort. This paid time off allowed many employees who would not otherwise be able to afford to do so to donate their time and energy and help ensure that Houston and the surrounding area rebuild as quickly as possible. Many of the 1200 employees of the company were either directly affected by Hurricane Harvey or had friends, neighbors and relatives who were which made them very eager to pitch in and help.
The workers were sent to various locations on the Gulf Coast, where ever they were needed. In addition to donating their time, the CEO and his employees also donated a large amount of money to the relief efforts. The employees of Nabors Industries donated over $170,000 which Petrello generously matched.
One of the reasons why the employees of Nabors Industries are so generous is because of the giving culture that Petrello helps to cultivate. The employees are treated very fair and generously. They have their own cafe where they can relax and drink coffee, a barbecue pit where they can eat lunch and enjoy the outdoors, and a health and fitness center where they can work on reaching their fitness goals.
Tony Petrello’s generosity extends far beyond the walls of his company. He has donated to and run fundraisers for the Texas Children’s Hospital. He also enjoys spending time with his family, which includes his wife Cynthia, who is also very giving of her time and money.
Tony Petrello is a graduate of Yale University and Harvard University with an MD, BS and JD. He worked as a lawyer at Baker and McKenzie law firm. He is one of the highest paid CEO in America.
