Anthony Petrello remembers his mentor Serge Lang through a foundation


Anthony Petrello journey to success has been an interesting one. He was born from a very humble family but as we speak today he one of the best CEOs in the world. He is managing one of the biggest companies in the world. He is the CEO of the biggest drilling company in the world known as Nabors Industries. The company offers oil and natural gas drilling services. Today it is operating in all the continents in the world. From Africa, America, Middle East to the Far East, Nabor Industries have ongoing projects. However, the company was not this great about two decades ago. In the 1990’s, Nabors was an ordinary drilling firm. However, fortunes started changing when the company employed Anthony Petrello. Since joining the company as the chief operating officer in 1991, Nabors Industries has been on a consistent growth. It as managed to outwit and outmaneuver other competitors in the industry.

Despite this success with Nabors industries, Anthony Petrello has remained true to philanthropic initiatives. In his early life, Petrello was a bright student. He was a mathematics genius. However, his parents could not afford to provide him with a first-class education that would have fitted his natural abilities. They sent him to local public schools. Anthony Petrello worked very hard and showed great abilities to solve mathematical problems at a very young age.

His dreams to study in a good institution finally came through while he was in high school. He was spotted by representatives of Yale University who offered him a full scholarship to study at the institution. He took a degree in mathematics. At the institution, he had the luck of being mentored by one of the best mathematics professors at the time, Serge Lang. Together they had a great friendship. They worked on various mathematical theories that needed to be proved. Anthony Petrello’s abilities were unique. No other student in his class would attempt the problems that he together with Serge Lang were solving.

Although Anthony Petrello dropped out of the Yale University to pursue another career, he came back after he had succeeded in life. After the death of his friend and mentor Serge Lang, Anthony Petrello came up with the idea of setting up a foundation that would appreciate the role that Serge Lang played at the Yale University. Anthony Petrello offered to contribute $150,000 to be awarded to a student who made great and unique achievements in the subject of mathematics. He also promised to add up to another $150000 for any other gift that the university received towards supporting the initiative.
