Anthony Petrello could be described as a genius when it comes to the mathematical field and also as the CEO of Nabors Industries. He is featured among the most influential names in the gas and oil industry. On the other hand, his contributions and involvement in philanthropy make him stand out.
For years Anthony has championed the improvement of healthcare services. There is no doubt he is still far from his planned achievements.
Anthony is married to Cynthia Petrello who was earlier known as Cynthia Carrafa a TV actress. In 1997 they were blessed with a baby girl at the Houston Women’s Hospital. The baby was born weighing about 20 ounces and had periventricular leukomalacia, a condition affecting infants born prematurely due to lack of enough oxygen supply to the brain. Carena was taken through a series of operations. Later it was clear that the baby was going to live with cerebral palsy, a condition which is associated with delayed development and chronic motor skill impairment, this was a turning point in Anthony’s life. During her life, Carena lost some necessary abilities like speaking, walking and feeding.
In the process of trying to help their daughter, Anthony Petrello found out that less was known about the disease. Anthony, therefore, co-founded an institute in collaboration with Texas Children Hospital. In addition to that Petrello committed seven million dollars to the research of factors contributing to the neurological disorder in children. Anthony and his wife have also been researching about other neurological research centers and offering them financial support where needed.
Despite donating millions of dollars to the research centers, Anthony Petrello has also been dedicated to uniting other philanthropists to give towards this progression. To date, Anthony and Cynthia are continually taking part in fundraisers and social events where they create awareness on neurological disorders affecting the children. Anthony and his wife are an inspiration to many parents going through similar situation. In particular, the love and affection they have shown towards their daughter have been of great help in lightening stigma that comes with neurological disorders.
Anthony’s generosity is much inspired by the love that he has for his daughter Carena. His spiritual and emotional network is made up of people who believe in the existence of light in the midst of darkness. Anthony and his friends are always confident that something is going to make each day better. The Petrello family has the hope that someday treatment will be found.

Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva is a dentist, a profession that has greatly contributed to both his personal development and the realization of his dream. When he graduated from the medical school, Chris was faced with a choice to make: He could either join a mainstream workforce or start his own personal venture. He chose to go his own way. Chris believes in quality medical care for all, and he has sought to do his part in dentistry. To achieve his objective, he had to believe in something. Having worked in an environment run by a non-clinician and gone through an awful experience with it, Chris developed a believe that teamwork by a group of professionals could achieve far more than a single person, so he set out to implement his idea with a focus on collective teamwork in an environment run by clinicians. He wasn’t wrong.
When he founded MB2 Dental, Dr. Chris was already half-way to achieving his major goal. He surrounded himself with the brightest of the minds in dentistry. The idea was to assemble a qualified team of professional dentists and have them work together offering fresh and creative perspectives in solving dental care issues. This strategy is a discontinuity from the traditional techniques that have all but been time-lapsed by technology and general growth of the medical field. Truth be told, this unique approach has helped and changed the lives of numerous dentists and patients at large. It’s for this reason that MB2 Dental continues to thrive and expand its reach across multiple states with numerous stations.
To make the cut more apparent, MB2 Dental prides itself in providing quick solutions to dental problems. The institution is founded on the value of putting the welfare of dental practitioners first, and that has the desired effect of improving focus on the patients’ welfare. Due to this, MB2 Dental has experienced tremendous growth with over 70 affiliates in 6 states and a workforce of 533 professionals. The firm has pledged to further this effective trend to fuel more growth and completely revolutionize the dental care sector. With Chris Steven’s new unique model, dentists can share ideas and grow with each other collectively as opposed to the traditional way of medical practice where one has to brainstorm and handle all outcomes by themselves. Chris Steven has introduced the next move.
Goettl Air is at it again. They bought another southern California family owned business called Walton’s Heating and Air. Owner Todd Longbrake of Walton’s said that the family business had become stagnant, but did his best. He believes that the decision to sell the business to Goettl has worked out for the better. He did not always think so. When Goettl came to Longbrake about the acquisition he was reluctant to hand it over. Over time he heard many positive things about the Goettl’s CEO and owner, Kenneth Goodrich. He learned about his philanthropy endeavors, and how he strives for excellence and great customer service. This won Todd Longbrake over and he hasn’t looked back ever since.
Since Walton’s was retained by Goettl it has made a huge turn around. Longbrake even joined the team as field supervision and sales manager. He has fit in completely as a leader, Goodrich said. He saw the potential in Walton’s to grow even bigger. They had similar values and family background as Goettl. The acquisition went through in 2015 but could not announced until they worked out a couple of bugs. There were marketing complications and operational issues within the business that had to be changed to move forward.
Kenneth Goodrich said that Goettl is looking to become a nationwide brand. Their next stop is Northern California and Texas. They currently have 306 employees and is looking forward to filling 200 more jobs in the near future. For more details visit Crunchbase.
Goettl’s High Desert Mechanical has been a leader in the industry since 1939. They specialize working in the harsh desert climate. They offer an array of services including new heating and air conditioning units, heating and cooling, duct sealing, maintenance plans, financing, plumbing services, geothermal, and a number of specials that could really save you a lot of money. Goettl has worked on commercial projects, remodels, new houses, and tract housing developments.
It all became when three brothers started their journey to start their family business. They uprooted their family from Mansfield, Ohio to the hot desert climate of Phoenix, Arizona. It was during the Great Depression that drove them to seek better opportunities. Luckily it all worked out for the Goettl brothers John, Bill, and Adam. People where impressed with their forward thinking and innovative technology. In Goettl’s history at one point they had over one hundred patents on the market. Even with all their success, they always put their customers first. You can follow their Facebook page.
