Tony Petrello Tells Workers To Take Off Time From Work To Help Out Hurricane Harvey Victims

Everyone who lives in Texas, especially in Houston, has either been affected by Hurricane Harvey themselves or knows a close friend or relative that was affected by it. This devastating hurricane broke many records and left many people with destroyed homes. Grocery stores were low on food. Roads were flooded and covered with broken trees, and cars were damaged and wrecked. Fortunately, some philanthropists and local companies have been chipping in to help out the residents of Houston and its surrounding areas. One such local business is Nabors Industries, led by the esteemed Tony Petrello.

Tony Petrello has a particular passion for giving back to the community. That is why he encourages his employees to take part in projects that rebuild the community and help out people who have been impoverished by the hurricane. They like doing this in their spare time when they are not working at Nabors or spending their time at the fitness center, barbecue grill, or coffee shop that are located on site at Nabors.

They don’t just do this in their spare time. Tony Petrello was kind enough to actually tell the workers to spend the time that they would normally spend working at the oil digging site on helping out the community. Tony actually told them to go and help out wherever people needed help.

The employees at Nabors Industries are dedicated to the community. This is partly due to the spirit that was injected into them by Tony himself. This spirit is evidenced by the fact that not only did the workers spend their precious time helping out with the relief efforts, but they also spent their hard earned money on charitable donations for the relief efforts. Altogether, the employees of Nabors Industries donated almost one hundred and seventy five thousand dollars for the relief efforts. Tony Petrello himself matched this amount with a donation of his own. This clearly shows that his leadership is what brought people who work for him to be charitable.

Tony Petrello studied at Yale University. He got his degree in Mathematics there. He later attended Harvard Law School. In 1979, he joined the national Baker and McKenzie law firm, becoming the managing director in New York nine years later. He currently holds the title of CEO at Nabors Industries, a company he joined in 1991.
