Anthony Petrello in the early 2010s became one of many CEOs to come under fire for excessive compensation by shareholders, even though the company’s stock had risen nearly 200%.
There were several reasons for the controversy, but primarily it was because most the company’s shareholders did not agree with the company’s executive compensation plan. It was in 2014 that Anthony Petrello agreed that the fair thing to do was to change the company’s corporate governance and compensation practices to bring it in line with what was expected by shareholders. The reforms that Petrello instituted included dividing the roles of chairman and CEO between two people, not allowing executive severance payments to be greater than triple the executive’s salary, and giving shareholders the ability to elect anyone with at least a 5% stake to the board of directors.
Having topped the charts of CEO total compensation, after these reforms Petrello earned just $27.5 million in 2015.
Petrello is currently the Chairman of the Board, President, and CEO of Nabors Industries Ltd, a contract drilling company. He joined the Board of Directors in 1991, served as President and COO until 2011, and became the company’s CEO in 2011. He also serves as director at Stewart & Stevenson LLC of Hillcorp Energy, is a member of the Board of Trustees of Texas Children’s Hospital, and is an advocate for research for cures for neurological disorders.
Anthony Petrello began his academic career with a bachelor and master of science degrees in Mathematics at Yale University and then went on to earn a J.D. at Harvard Law School.

There are many business industries that provide many useful products and services to the public. One of the industries that has provided many products and services over the past decade that have helped to change the way society lives on a day-to-day basis is the technology industry. Many technology innovations have been developed over the past few decades that allow people to do many things that were not possible in prior years.
Although some of these technology innovations have made a huge impact on the world, there are many technology innovations along with technology products and services that are used everyday without earth setting changes. These technology innovations, products, and services are used by many people and companies to help complete daily tasks.
Regarding these various innovations, products, and services, many different technology companies may provide the items or similar items to the public. The competition between the various companies can become fierce because all the companies are competing for the same market share and customer sales.
Two technology companies that have fierce competition concerning technology product and service sales are Securus Technologies and GTL. The two companies have issues that cover a span of several years. Recently Securus Technologies sent out a press release that offered a challenge to GTL regarding the technology provided by the two companies. Securus Technologies wants to have a technology bakeoff between the two companies using an independent judge to determine the company with the best technology.
GTL has yet to step forward to accept the challenge. There has been a long-standing argument between Securus Technologies and GTL over technology issues. I think that a technology bakeoff would go a long way towards ending many of the issues. I feel that GTL prefers to stay away from any direct competition such as a technology bakeoff with Securus Technologies.
Considered one of the top technology companies in the safety field, Securus Technologies provides technology related products and services to companies in the public safety, corrections, and law enforcement areas.
