Tony Petrello believes in expertise through experience

While it’s an obvious fact that most of the nation CEOs are extremely intelligent and qualified people, a few stand out above the rest, even in that rarefied air that fills up the executive suites of the nation’s largest companies. One of those CEOs Tony Petrello. With an MS in mathematics from Yale, Petrello is perhaps the most heavily qualified CEO in the country today. But he is always humble about his own credentials and accomplishments. Rather than hanging his hat on things he’s already done, the head of Nabors Industries always prefers to look to the future and the challenges that lie ahead.

But that’s not to say that the many accomplishments of Petrello, while heading up the firm, have been things that should go unrecognized. For example, when Petrello took over at the helm of Nabors Industries, the company had just exited chapter 11 bankruptcy and was reeling from years of poor management and neglect. The company, which at one time had one of the strongest names in the oil business, due to its participation in the opening of the North Slope of Alaska’s oil fields, by the year 1991, was in need of a serious change in leadership.

Petrello rose to the challenge, refocusing the company’s mission and rallying his troops around the new cause of technological development and solving some of the most pressing issues in the North American oil market. By the mid-2000’s, Tony Petrello grown the company into the single largest operator of on-land drilling operations.

Today, Nabors Industries operates over 500 rigs in 25 different countries. It has gained experience in almost every type of environment on Earth, including some of the most harsh arctic climes as well as the deepest well sites in the world’s oceans. Now, Nabors Industries is the company oil professionals turn to when they don’t know how to get the job done in the follownig: http://fuelfix.com/blog/tag/anthony-petrello/ click here.
