The current Chief Executive Office of Nabors Industries Ltd, Anthony (Tony) Petrello joined Harvard School of Law where he pursued a Juris Doctor Degree. He also went through Yale University where he acquired an M.S. Degrees in Mathematics.

Lloyd Grove, the editor at large for The Daily Beast went to college with Petrello. In Grove’s 30/5/2014 article titled “The Prince and The Pauper; My College Roommate became an Oligarch,” he says that he the highest paid CEO in the US, Anthony Petrello, as an eighteen-year-old mathematics whiz.

Lloyd had been disturbed inwardly with unworthy emotions such as depression, hopelessness, and envy ever since the Petrello topped the highest paid list. Petrello and Grove were roommates in their freshman year.

Grove browsed the website of Nabors Industries, the world’s leading land-based oil and gas drilling contractor, and discovered that his freshman-year roommate, Petrello, was its CEO and Chairman. He describes Petrello as the skinny public-schooled kid on scholarship from working-class Newark. Petrello had a thick Jersey accent, was a loud mouth, and had an eager demeanor that stood out. From the article, it is clear that Petrello was charming in college.

One quality of Petrolle that Grove clearly states is that of a mathematics genius, and at 18 years of age, Petrello had become a protégé of the world renowned mathematician, Prof. Serge Lang. It was a disappointment when Tony opted for Harvard School rather than maximizing his mathematical brilliance.

It is clear that Petrello thrived in the corporate practice for Baker &McKenzie law firm, Manhattan, in the 1980’s. In 1991, Petrolle got a job offer from Nabors Industries, Houston, one of Baker and McKenzie’s important clients. He joined Nabors as the president and chief operating offer. The rest of Grove’s article is about Petrello’s marriage to Cynthia Petrello and the birth of the daughter Carena, who developed cerebral palsy and led to her parents being one of the leading medical philanthropists in supporting children with neurological disorders like their daughter.

Lori Senecal, a powerful woman who is the global CEO of CP+B is the perfect epitome of women power and success. She has not only been able to scale this ladder in her latest conquest but has also had success in all her former positions at other companies.

As someone who is described as an introvert, you cannot help but wonder how the heck she does it? How did she get here? Well, for one, she is made of tough material and has on occasion been described as steely and unaffected by delicate matters such as the firing of an employee.

The Savior of Wobbling Planes

According to the New York Times, she has had a reputation of coming into new companies and overhauling them into a reformed state that changes the way we see them. They are usually in transition, and she helps keep them afloat in their new environment.

She creates evolution paths and globalization strategies that make them flourish in an instant. This is the trademark of the woman who loves wearing black and the occasional navy blue, a personal trait that has accentuated her steely countenance and mannerisms.

Her Management Style

When it comes to this particular topic, she can be blunt and focused on what she wants that it appears as if she is insensitive but given the fact that she has gotten the job done is a testament to the success that he methods usually bring.

We would expect such a woman to be celebrated, but that is not the case. She is different and does not fit into the categories of female CEO who are a cliché in society. She challenges the system and norms.

This has caused her to be cast in the light of a ruthless leader who gets the job done abut at the expense of a few people who criticize and try diminishing her work. She has admitted that a less steely approach could be good, but she is too authentic and straightforward to fit that mold.

The 3% Conference

The 3% conference is the conference that champions for female talent and leadership. Obviously, she would be featured here. She has been lauded as one of the women in the 3% of the world’s women leaders. She is the role model that young girls look up to.

Finally

Despite the remarks about the way she runs her ship, she is a woman who always gets the job done, and that alone is enough to crush the critics. Suffice to say that ‘there is an aspect about a woman who is a leader and behaves in a certain way that is okay for a man but not a woman.
