The energy sector holds one of the best minds in business and this assertion is based on the achievements of the Nabors Industries Ltd. This company has been making notable progress in the industry and it has been ranked as one of the best and the largest geothermal energy producer as well as the largest natural gas contractor. Such a global recognition cannot be attributed to a company unless the top leadership has its job well done. At the top of the Nabors’ leadership is one of the best business minds, Tony Petrello. He is the brains behind success of the company.
Petrello has not ascended this far, gaining admiration and success, from a void. His academic background has largely contributed to his success in the business field and more precisely in energy sector. He is a graduated and a proud alumnus of the Harvard University where he pursued a degree in law. Later on he joined Yale University for his degree in mathematics and later a master’s degree in the same field. His academic pursuits must have been the sole influencers of his appointment at law firm in New York where he began his professional career.
After working for 5 years practicing law and working as a managing partner in the law firm, Tony Petrello decided to seek for better and larger responsibilities which by all means he had proven to handle. The Nabors Company could not forego a man of Petrello’s qualification and reputation. In 1991, he was made president of the Nabors Industries Ltd. Years later, Petrello worked so hard to capture the company’s investors’ attention and in 2012 he was made the CEO and the Chairman of the board. Such high ranking positions can only follow you if you are really good at what you do.
