Google CEO Sundar Pichai is the best-paid CEO in the United States, with a $650 million stake in Alphabet.

Engadget reported that Pichai received $199 million in stock in February, which brought his total shares in Alphabet to $650 million.

His remuneration for leading Google is significantly higher than that of Apple CEO Tim Cook, who received $376.2 million in Apple shares when he took over the company.

Wealth-X and Business Insider’s list of the 50 wealthiest people on the planet showed that Google’s Larry Page ($38.5 billion) and Sergey Brin ($37 billion) are two of the richest execs in the tech world.
