Lloyd Grove hardly pays attention to Associated Press’ annual ranking of the most paid CEOs in the United States. The former college roommate to Anthony Petrello says that his disinterest in the list is due to his poor knowledge of business and industry. He also notes that he had never planned to make the amount of money made by individuals in the list.
Grove is happy with his life given that the big difference in the amount of money that he makes and that the CEOs earn does not bother him. After all, it is of no use for him to re-examine his life and try to analyze the terrible life choices that he has made over the years. However, his disinterest in the list changed recently when he noticed a name similar to that of his former roommate, Tony Petrello. According to AP, Anthony G. Petrello had made about $68.2 million in that year. Petrello is the chairman and chief executive officer of Nabors Industries.
This news made Grove to conduct an online research on Nabors Industries, the world’s largest land based oil-and gas-drilling contractor. Through the research, he confirmed his doubts. It was indeed his former roommate. This discovery filled Glove with both pride and competitive anxiety. He had made the discovery that an old friend was more successful than he was.
In a recent interview, Grove went ahead to describe the Petrello that he went to school with: a skinny kid from a working-class family in Newark. Grove posited that he had a thick New Jersey accent and stood out among his friends and classmates.
Anthony Petrello is a revered American executive leader and philanthropist. He is the president of Nabors Industries LTD. Petrello joined the company in 1991 as a director before rising to become the deputy chairman in 2003. Before joining Nabors Industries, Tony worked as a lawyer. In 2011, Tony was elected to become the company’s president and CEO. Between 1991 and 2011, he served as the company’s COO. Petrello holds a law degree from Harvard Law School and a BS and MS in mathematics from Yale University.
Securus decision to reinvent its sales department was made in 2015 and followed by John Bell joining the company as its ‘senior vice president of sales’. His role will mainly be to come up with a software based high tech sales team. This need was informed by the expansion of Securus’ portfolio: over 800 products going to the corrections and prisons sector.
The CEO told the media that the decision to bring in more experience to the sale department was informed by the $600 million spent by the company in developing safety products for the corrections system. Richard said there was need to bring in an individual experienced in handling transformation of sales teams.
The 35 year experience John Bell has worked to his favor in clinching the job. Rick said that Bell’s experience in organizational culture transformation and excellence in delivery were needed at Securus. John’s career in developing sales leaders that are exceptional and delivering exceptional growth stood out according to Richard. Visit LinkedIn and follow Rick’s profile.
Bell went to Holy Cross and later got a postgraduate education at ‘Wharton School of Business’. He also went to ‘Kellogg School of Management’. John has worked at IBM and At&T: both leaders in their industries. He has also worked for NTT Verio Verizon and ‘Time Warner Cable’.
John Bell will be working with Josh Conklin, the sales ‘vice president’ and a team of 100 people. Josh will be reporting to Bell as the two try to realize the outcomes spelt out by the CEO. The outcomes include: increasing ‘face-to-face’ visits to customers, develop a training program for sales associates, utilize ‘Securus Technology Center’ with many more yearly customer presentations and to present more of Securus products to customers.
Richard insisted that Securus would get more contracts if their partners in law enforcement and the corrections facilities understood what they were offering. Since the products offered by Securus have become increasingly sophisticated, the sales team has to be in a position to effectively present the products to clients. The investigative kit, security apparatus and safety tools have advanced technologically and Richard feels the sales team should step up.
