The company Nabors Industries was originally founded in 1956, by Claire Nabors. Nabors began building a reputation for greatness, in Alaska, by being the first in the world to drill horizontally and for hiring women to work in the drilling camps with the men. The company was bought out because of its success, by the Guggenheim family, who owned Anglo Energy, but was doomed to failure through a decline in the economy. A couple of investors, Gene Isenberg and Marty Whitman, were lucky enough to buy into the company and make it grow into a $17 billion company, with Petrello as Chief Executive Officer since 2011.
Anthony Petrello has made a success of his career and has accumulated millions through the success of Nabors Industries. He also cares deeply for the discovery and research for children’s neurological diseases. His daughter, Carena, was born prematurely and diagnosed with periventricular leukomalacia (PVL) when she was born, which turned into cerebral palsy as she grew.
