Tony Petrello guides Nabors Industries with brilliant strategic vision

Nabors Industries has become the single largest operator of land drilling assets in the United States today. But it wasn’t always that way. Nabors Industries went through an era of stagnation that lasted throughout the entire decades of the ‘70s and ‘80s. It was not until new management was brought in, after the company had gone through a chapter 11 bankruptcy and nearly lost everything, that the company began to turn its fortunes around.

No one was more instrumental in the turnaround then Tony Petrello, the company’s CEO, who has been on board with Nabors Industries in one executive role or another since 1991. Under Petrello’s strategic leadership, a new vision was formulated and implemented. Petrello saw the enormous potential in the vast reserves of North American shale oil. But until that time, the oil contain within these reserves, such as the Bakken Shale formation of North Dakota, was viewed as being too difficult to extract and not economically viable.

Petrello set out to change that. He began pouring resources into researching and developing the most high-tech and cutting-edge directional drilling equipment that the world has ever seen. Many at the time thought that this was a risky bet. They did not understand the enormous potential that lay just beneath the ground throughout much of North America and Northern Canada in the form of hard oil deposits.

But the plan paid off handsomely. By the mid 2000s, Nabors Industries was the go-to provider for all directional drilling equipment within the United States. This led them to become the premier provider of the technology that was required to extract the shale deposits in a way that made economic sense. With a near-monopoly on directional drilling equipment being provided to the North American drilling operations at land-based sites, Nabors Industries was generating more revenue and more business than it had ever seen in its entire history.

JustFab CEO Don Ressler Keeps Going

Don Ressler is a serial CEO and entrepreneur. As the founder, he has created multiple successful businesses and brands and he shows no signs of slowing down. Recently, his companies have been valued at excellent rates and his success continues to inspire others in the same industry.

JustFab, one of the companies that Ressler has founded, just reached an impressive valuation of $1 billion. That’s almost unheard of outside of the corners of Silicon Valley. Typically, these companies don’t see growth like that unless they are a piece of software or app. However, Ressler has a keen sense of vision for markets and where they are headed. This allows him to position himself with the advantage and overcome competitors. This vision along with his work ethic and intellectual prowess make him on the best CEOs the world has ever seen.

He consistently builds businesses and is able to attract the right funding for them to work. This is a rare skill set but one he has acquired through his experience as a marketing and business leader. In fact, Ressler built his own company from scratch and now he gets to run an international organization with many companies to his name.

He didn’t always start having Kimora Lee Simmons and Kate Hudson as celebrity endorsement for his brands though. Fabletics and JustFab took a while to build, and a lot of startup capital, which totals in the hundreds of millions of dollars. It was with this money he was able to continue the success he sees today. But Ressler had to create his own company first called FitnessHeaven.com which he sold. Then, he teamed up his partners and sold his company. This allowed him to see new market opportunities that he capitalized on, such as performance marketing. The idea came to him while he and his team at Alena Media where all brainstorming together. They took two weeks, but finally Ressler realized they needed to create company around beauty and fashion. It began an e-commerce empire that exists today.

When it comes to Don Ressler, one thing is certain: he knows how to run a business. He wants to continue to improve his products and offerings at every opportunity. This is apparent in the fact they have been able to achieve incredible results and grow at an impressive pace. Time will tell, but it looks like this CEO is on top for right now.

The DeVos Family’s Republican Support

The time for a new president is fast approaching. We are now at the epicenter of the presidential campaigns. Various high profile personalities are aligning themselves behind certain candidates. The DeVos family, a rich and powerful clan in west Michigan, has chosen to back the Republican candidate, Marco Rubio. As spokesman for his family, billionaire businessman Dick DeVos recently explained why the family was now backing Rubio. He said they had been backing Florida Governor Jeb Bush until he dropped out of the race.

DeVos added that they intend to do all they can to give Rubio momentum in his campaign. The aid of the immensely wealthy clan will primarily come in the form of significant financial assistance. Their friendship with Rubio did not just start. Dick has been well acquainted with Rubio since his 2006-8 stint in the Florida House of Representatives. It was during that time that the Devos grew very impressed by the leadership of both Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. Dick DeVos well understands how hard it is to be a politician.

He made an unsuccessful bid for governor of Michigan in 2006. As of right now, Rubio is behind Trump and Cruz in the preliminaries and caucuses so far. There is mounting pressure for the Ohio Gov. John Kasich to back out of the race, so Rubio will have more of a chance against his opponents. But Kasich is not backing down. In fact, he will soon be running ads that will attempt to explain why he has more of a chance against Clinton than Rubio. In the recent, certain of the DeVos family have given money to Kasich’s campaign. In fact, Dick’s mother Helen gave Kasich, Bush, and Rubio $2, 700 each. Dick says it has not been until very, very recently that Rubio has become the clear favorite among the entire DeVos clan.

DeVos is the heir to the Amway Corporation (Michigan Live feature) and worked with the company throughout his career before he left to begin the Windquest Group. His resume on New Netherland Institute proves his experience in business and philanthropy.

Dick and Betsy started their own foundation that gives regularly to education, community services and many more causes. Dick is proud to be part of an aviation charter school both because of his dedication to education and because of his passion for flight.

The Story of Coriant

As time moves forward and technology progresses, the industries that rely on technology also must change and adapt, and make a place in the modern era. Companies in the industry such a Coriant know this like many others would.

Coriant is the name of a telecommunications company that got its first start back in 2013. The company, which has its headquarters in both Germany and the United States, was originally under the ownership of Nokia Siemens Networks, which in turn was owned by Marlin Equity Partners. In the spring of 2013, the company made the announcement that it would declare its independence from Nokia and become its own entity. More recently, Marlin Equity partners has decided to form merger between Coriant and Tellabs, another telecom company, and as a result everything will operate under the name of Coriant.

Kheradpir serves as the current CEO of the company, after putting in long hours of work cooperating with vendors within and outside of the company. With him as CEO, Kheradpir now replaces former CEO Pat DiPietro, who now serves as the vice chairman of the company. Kheradpir is a London native who spent a large portion of his younger years living in Iran, but left for the United States to attend Cornell University. While there, he earned his bachelors, masters and doctorate degrees in electrical engineering.

His work with the company impressed his employers so much that he eventually found himself being award the position of chief information officer (CIO). In 2000, GTE and Bell Atlantic merged together to form what is now Verizon, where Kheradpir also held the position of CIO. During his time there, he was responsible for creating small teams in the department who would come up with new and innovative ideas for marketing. He was also able to get the information technology budget and number of staff reduced to a significant amount.
