When talent meets hard work, one is on the path of undeniable success. But when extreme intelligence meets a genius, it leads to something beyond. This is what happened when a very gifted student, Tony Petrello, met his Yale University mathematics professor Serge Lang. The combination of the two led to a formation of a mastermind in mathematics, who later on took on the world of law.
Tony Petrello’s childhood was spent in New Jersey. He was noted for outdoing his high-school peers, thus enabling himself to study at an IVY League school. After obtaining his Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree, Petrello enrolled in Harvard’s School of Law. Post graduation, he started working for one of the big corporations where he was specialized in the area of tax and business.
At this point, Petrello has already lived in many different states, as well as switched from Mathematics to Law. However, this is not where his career endeavors stopped. Working on a project with a company called “Narbors Industries”, the managers became so impressed with his performance that he was offered a Chief Operational Officer position with the oil-drilling company. Upon acceptance, Petrello relocated to Texas, a state in which he continues to reside.
Fast forward to 25 years later and Tony Petrello is Narbors Industries’ Chief Executive Officer. His positive spirit and brilliant skills across many industries enabled him to help this company maintain continuous growth. Market volatility and gas price changes have not slowed down his company, as Petrello managed to stay afloat. His efforts also did not go unnoticed. In every year since 2013, he was one of the most paid CEOs across the nation. This included over $50 million bonuses on top of his regular compensation. On average, Petrello made close to a $100 million annually in the last half-a-decade. For more info about us: https://www.linkedin.com/in/anthony-petrello-1335b097 click here.
Narbors Industries is a large company with over 500 drilling rigs. The sheer size and gross income they obtain during a year makes it possible for them to pay their CEO such an enormous amount of money. The fact that the CEO brings in great ratios and financial statements also contributes to his earnings.
In his personal life, Tony Petrello shows just as much success. After having his daughter born with a cerebral palsy, he dedicated his free time and resources to others with this condition. Personally, him and his wife Cynthia have donated tens of millions of dollars to the cause. This helped establish “Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute” at the Texas Children’s Hospital. The fundraisers he organized over the years further amplified his contributions to a couple of hundred millions. Safe to say, Tony Petrello might be one of the most successful philanthropists to ever walk the earth.
