The hurricane season of 2017 was one of the worst in history. Hurricane Harvey devastated portions of Houston with it’s wrath. The flooding that occured because of Hurricane Harvey left portions of Texas without a lot of hope for the future. As a Category 4 hurricane, Harvey came into Texas and even though it weakened the amount of rain and damage it caused hurt a lot of people.
CEO of Nabors Industries Ltd, Anthony Petrello saw the people of Texas were in need and was called to action. As a philanthropist who is no stranger to helping out, he saw that Nabors Industries could make a difference. With the employees of his drilling company, Mr. Petrello started the Nabors Disaster Relief Fund which was made up of employee contributions. The relief fund helped the employees of Nabors Industries to raise 173,622 for the communities affected by Hurricane Harvey. That amount was then matched by the company.
Nabors Industries Ltd, even used their on site kitchen to make three hot meals a day for the local people suffering through the after effects of Harvey. The employees went so far as to volunteer to assist throughout this disaster wherever they were needed. While some of the employees were affected by Hurricane Harvey, most of Nabors Industries came out because of the philanthropic climate Anthony Petrello has fostered at the company.
A graduate of Yale University and a transplant from New Jersey, Anthony Petrello has become one of Houston’s own. His dedication to helping others has been a lasting note throughout his career. With his wife Cynthia he has shown a special focus on children’s neurological disorders which helped to open the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute at the Texas Children’s Hospital.
Nabors Industries Ltd, is a growing company that currently world’s largest oil and gas drilling contractors that operates in 20 countries. The success of Nabors Industries no doubt has a lot to do with the climate of giving and caring for their fellow man. Whatever Anthony Petrello is doing to spread this spirit is no doubt working not only for the people of Nabors Industries but for all the peoples lives he has touched.
