Every successful corporation has had a strong leader behind it. For the famous software company Microsoft that person was Bill Gates. Bill Gates was known for creating software solutions that made using a computer to accomplish vital tasks such as creating documents for clients or managing one’s finances via an Excel spreadsheet simple. For the technology company Apple that capable leader was the entrepreneur Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs’ unique approach to creating consumer technology helped Apple to distinguish itself from other companies that operated in the same industry as Apple. Jobs created products that were not only easy to use but elegant compared to less sophisticated looking products. He also developed a strong brand for his company that inspired customers to relate to his products the way that they related to celebrities or cult movies.
In order for a corporation to thrive it needs strong capable leadership. Many promising companies have failed to realize their full potential or to survive because the most senior people were not able to provide the vision and the strategy that the company needed. The history of business is littered with companies that were poised for success but failed due to problems that were entirely preventable. Businesses can have strong elements such as capable and skilled employees, strong ideas about how to best position their products and services in the marketplace and plentiful resources for expansion in the form of venture capital or debt equity. That said companies like the Texas-based oil contracting behemoth Nabors Industries are able to thrive because they have capable leaders like Anthony Petrello helping to lead them. Anthony Petrello is the current Chief Executive Officer and President of Nabors Industries. Nabors Industries stands apart from its competitors in part because of how expansive its operations are. Many companies have limited their businesses to operating in a single town, city, region or country. Nabors Industries has operations that extend across the planet. Nabors Industries’ operations are based in the Middle East, North America, South America, the African continent and East Asia. Anthony Petrello’s leadership is the oil that keeps Nabors Industries sprawling empire running smoothly.
Even though Anthony Petrello is one of the nation’s leading executives working in the oil industry he did not begin his career in the oil sector. Before deciding to lead a large corporation based in the extractive industry Anthony Petrello was actually interested in becoming an academic. He began his career as a college student studying mathematics and delving into mathematical theories under the tutelage of a Yale University-based math theorist. His interest in the oil industry actually came much later on in his life after he had graduated from school. Rather than deciding to become a mathematician after graduate school Anthony Petrello took an entirely different and unexpected route. He decided to enroll in Harvard University’s Law School and studied to become a lawyer. After graduating from law school Anthony Petrello took a position at a law firm and became acquainted with Nabors Industries when they hired his law firm to advise them. The company hired him away from his law firm and he would go on to rise through its ranks to the very top.
