In the Houston area, oil directors are known to be humanitarian, unlike other areas where the executives are known to be greedy. However, this is not the case with one oil executive Anthony Petrello. Long before the Chief Executive Officer of Nabors Industries took up the position, he was known to be a person with a big heart and a great supporter of the community. Mr. Petrello and his wife were blessed with a daughter who was born prematurely and their act of kindness to the society increased. Petrello is considered to be among the Chief Executive officers who are generous.
Anthony and his wife Cynthia are devoted to giving their support regarding money to the medical research organizations in the United States. According to records, the couple has already donated $5milliona, and they have pledged to donate another $2million in support of more medical research. The donation that Anthony’s offer comes from a personal reason of their daughter being born prematurely and going through health challenges. Carena is their daughter who recently began chewing food at the age of seven, this is a blessing to their parents, and they are grateful for her progress. When their daughter; Carena was born prematurely, at the age of six months, the baby, she suffered periventricular leukomalacia a condition that is very common among premature babies. The condition occurs when the oxygen does not reach the brain. The condition can further cause cerebral palsy a disease that affected Carena.
