Sundar Pichai is the CEO of Google, which obviously comes with a massive salary. But just how much did Pichai make in 2015?
Please sit down for this, I don’t want to be responsible for you fainting…
Pichai racked in $100.5 million in total compensation for 2015.
Honestly, I don’t know if I should be laughing or crying.
Here’s the deal, Pichai’s actually salary isn’t that crazy for someone who’s the CEO of Google. It’s $652,500. That’s normal. I can deal with that. However, the bulk of the compensation comes from the insane $600 million in stock options Alphabet (Google’s parent company) gave Pichai. The options vest a few times a year, which in 2015, added up to $99.82 million.
Pichai took over for Google cofounder Larry Page. He previously ran Chrome and Android.
