CEO Tony Petrello Gives Tirelessly After Birth Of Premature Daughter

Tony Petrello gives liberally after birth of Daughter Carena

Tony Petrello and President/CEO of Nabor Industries focuses on giving back after Daughter Carena was born prematurely eight years ago. It has been a long journey for little Carena, as she has only just begun to be capable of eating on her own this year. Tony Petrello, along with his wife Cynthia have given their time, emotional and monetary support tirelessly to fund scientific research for periventricular leukomalacia, or PVL. Carena was born at only 6 months gestation. Weighing only 20 ounces, Carina’s disorder developed into Cerebral Palsey from the lack of oxygen to her small brain.

Never giving up hope for a Cure

After Tony and his wife researched and contacted the best institutions available in the country, it was brought to their attention that there is just simply not enough light being shone on research for premature infants , PVI and Cerebral Palsey or for individuals with brain injuries in general. Tony is a member of the Texas Children’s Hospital Board of Trustees and is working closely with Texas Children’s Hospital to give Carena the daily care that she requires. Tony describes his Daughter as a joy, and an inspiration to everyone she meets.


Tony Petrello, best known for his articulate business strategy, was not born into wealth and success

Tony Pertrello is not just the leader of natural gas drilling and oil. He is a one of the highest paid CEO’s in the United States, in his own right. He is admired widely for his competent business dealings and as a pioneer of innovation in his field.

Tony Petrello grew up in a family that often struggled to make ends meet in Newark, New Jersey. His big break came when he was offered a scholarship to Yale based on his exceptional grades and PHD level mathematics skill upon high-school graduation.
