I'm no billionaire, call me a Zillionaire!
Sundar Pichai became a household name when he was appointed as the CEO of Google in August 2015. Counted among one of the most versatile executives in the tech industry, Pichai undoubtedly is the perfect fit for the Google's top seat. His focus towards emerging markets and his extraordinary project handling is popular in the business world providing him a place where nobody questions his reign.
Done with the intro of the man who does not require one, let's jump into his pocket and count the greenery that it boasts.
Having the net worth of 43.8 Billion USD (2017), one can only imagine the extraterrestrial figures he must be making.
So what about Larry's appointee, Sundar Pichai? How much is his worth?
Google's CEO received a stock award of a whopping $198.7 million in 2016 that is apparently the double of what he received (US $99.8 million) in the year prior to it.
Leaving the compensation part aside, the Google CEO received $650,500 as salary in 2016 compared to $652,500 in 2015.
But why is the Goddess of money so much in favor of the business ninja?
''The numerous successful launches'' became the driving factors behind the CEO's heavy paycheck and we can't question that. With Google's sales having risen by 22.5 percent last year, the growing YouTube business and different successful product launches like smartphones, a virtual reality headset, a router, and a voice-controlled smart speaker, Mr Sundar has really proven his bit.
Tim Cook as the Apple CEO received $8,747,719 as compensation of which $3,000,000 was his salary.
Sir, the Indian great Mr Sundar Pichai is reaching to beat the figures.
