Anthony Petrello, chief manager of Nabors Industries Limited, has excelled both in academics and in career. His position at Nabors earns him a relatively hefty income, ranking him among the best-paid CEOs in the world. Last year alone, his total calculated compensation was more than $15 million. His wife, Cynthia Carrafa Petrello, was a soap opera actress in New York in the 90s. Generally speaking, the couple is affluent, to say the least.
Petrello’s Daughter, Carena Francesca
In 1997, when Cynthia was 24 weeks pregnant with their first child, something unfortunate happened. Her baby was delivered prematurely, underweight, and suffering from periventricular leukomalacia. The couple began their quest to find a solution to their daughter’s challenges. They had doctors at Houston Women’s Hospital try all they could to help. As wealthy as the couple would have been, however, all their efforts to save their daughter from the disorder proved futile. They were left with the option of supporting Carena Francesca Petrello face the challenging life ahead.
Anthony and Cynthia were frustrated by the lack of proper facilities that could heal their daughter. As a way of preventing other infants from suffering the same fate as Carena, the couple decided to help in setting up facilities that could address neurological problems in children. They joined hands with Dan & Jan Duncan, an equally philanthropic couple, in executing that noble course. The two couples have since supported many medical facilities in and around Houston to improve their medical equipment.
Anthony’s Education Background
Those who schooled with Anthony Petrello describes him as a genius. Lloyd Groove, Tony’s roommate and course mate at Yale University wrote an article about Tony sometimes in 2014. In the article, he described Tony as the most successful of all his classmates. Lloyd recalled how good Tony was in their mathematics class and was surprised that he opted for corporate jobs instead of pursuing a mathematically oriented career. Just as described by Lloyd, Tony’s academic background speaks for itself. Besides his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mathematics, he also holds a degree in Law.
