According to a company filing on Tuesday, Pichai received a total compensation of $100.5 million for 2015.
Sundar Pichai, the computer engineer born in India who has risen through the ranks to become CEO of Google last year, is now making the kind of money that will make some of the biggest names on the Forbes list jealous.
According to a company filing on Tuesday, Pichai received a total compensation of $100.5 million for 2015. (Baba God pick up, epp me!)
Just to give you a little bit of perspective, the average compensation for CEOs of the 350 largest firms in the US in 2014 was $16.3 million, according to the Economic Policy Institute in the US.
That means Pichai is earning about 8 times more than the average CEO of a large company in the US.
Pichai is a long-time Google executive who previously ran the Chrome and Android businesses at the giant before being named last year, as the new CEO of Google after the Internet giant was restructured to make Google a standalone business under the Alphabet parent company.
"I am very fortunate,"says Pichai in a BuzzFeed profile article published this week, in response to a question about his reportedly lavish stock options.
