Although Petrello is among the best-paid bosses, he still did not make it to be among the top-best-paid bosses. In the year 2014, some changes were agreed by Nabors Industries Ltd. Nabors agreed to change both the compensation and corporate governance practices. These changes impacted the roles of the CEO and chairman. That led to limiting the payment severance of the executive to 3 times bonus and executive salary. The shareholders were given the authority to elect with 5% stake as their least to the board of directors of the company. The shareholders, therefore, shared among themselves the pay of Petrello. The money was turned back to them after all the steps above. Although he missed it as the top-best –paid bosses, he is listed the best-paid CEO.
