Anthony Petrello may not be a household name in the United States, but he is one of the biggest contributors to the economy of the United States. He heads one of the biggest corporations in the world that have its headquarters in Texas. Nabors Industries is the world’s number one on-land drilling company. It has operations in almost every corner of this world. Since he joined the corporation, he has led it to great success. His talent as a leader has clearly manifested itself to the world through his achievements in the company. Anthony Petrello is not only a business executive but also great philanthropist who never shy away from making huge contributions to the causes that he believes in.
Anthony Petrello is on record as one of the best philanthropists in Texas. He has contributed to many community-based initiatives in the state. His contributions have been largely in the sectors of healthcare and education. In the education sector, he started foundation in honor of one of his friends Prof. Serge Lange with who he worked with at the University of Yale School of mathematics.
Although this is one area where he has scored highly, the healthcare sector is where he has made a name for himself. He has been in this field for some time now, making massive contributions that are meant to change the way of life for thousands of children who suffer from neurological diseases. Anthony Petrello has been keen to see that a research center that deals with neurological disorder diseases are established in the state.
His initiative has been pushed by a problem that he has experienced right at his home. His daughter is a victim of neurological disorders. He has a condition known as Cerebral Palsy that has rendered her life so difficult to handle. Baby Carena has been unable to do basic human functions such as walking, chewing and talking since she was born. This is a problem that has prompted his father, who is a wealthy man to go looking for possible solutions to the problem that his daughter is facing.
In his efforts to realize a solution, Anthony Petrello has noted that not many helpful methods of treatment to that kind of a medical problem are available. There is a missing part in the medical fraternity that deserves to be filled. The medical treatment of children with the medical disorder has not been well researched. This is the reason that Anthony Petrello is financing the operations of the Neurological Research Center in Texas.
