The growing trend for successful business people to develop their philanthropic interests in tandem with their business interests is not something Tony Petrello has taken part in; instead, the Newark-born CEO of Nabors Industries believes the success achieved by himself should stand as part of a wider moral code he would live by whether he was a CEO or an employee of the drilling company. Highlighting his belief in the powerful desire for a better community for all has been the response to the Hurricane Harvey disaster which has seen his involvement reach financial and time commitments.

Within Houston, Texas, the response by Nabors has been overwhelming for many who have seen the personal decision of the Petrello family to match any donations made to charitable groups by members of the Nabors staff which have resulted in more than $340,000 in charitable funds making their way to the local community.
