Tony Petrello is a distinguished corporate executive in the United States. He leads the biggest oil company in the country called Nabors Industries. Tony Petrello is the CEO of the company and has been holding the position since 2011. He has become popular especially in Texas not because of his wealth as a top executive but as a generous philanthropist who has given out millions in supporting the community. Tony Petrello supports various causes in Texas that are meant to alleviate the problems people are going through. His philanthropic work has seen him team up with his wife to support a noble idea of medical research at the Texas Children’s Hospital.
Tony Petrello had always had the heart to help even before he was appointed CEO. As a beneficiary of such initiatives, while he was growing up, he has always held charitable causes close to his heart. He knows they can change a person’s life just like he did. While Tony Petrello was growing up, he was sponsored by the Yale University to get education. He was from a poor family who could not have afforded to give him the education he deserved despite being brilliant in his studies. Since then, Tony Petrello has been using part of his wealth in giving back to the community as a sign of appreciation. Tony Petrello has further gained motivation to support charitable causes through his own experiences. As of today, Petrello is a top financier of the neurological research center found at the Texas Children’s Hospital.
This is a cause he has been supporting for some time now as he tries to find a cure for a medical disorder that his daughter is suffering from. Tony Petrello has given $5 million to the medical facility to facilitate research work. Part of his donation has been used to recruit top world doctors and surgeons who are supposed to conduct research. Tony Petrello remains optimistic that this research center will develop a cure for neurological disorders in children like Carena. Before engaging the Texas Children’s Hospital to start the research Centre, he had traversed all over the world looking for a medical facility that would treat his daughter’s condition, but none was available. It is after this unsuccessful search that he finally approached the Texas Children’s hospital about starting a research Centre that would come up with a solution for neurological problems. Through the efforts of Tony Petrello, thousands of children could have their medical problems solved.
