alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai received $226 million in total compensation in 2022, most of which came through stock awards, according to a securities report filed by the company on Friday.
Pichai received $218 million in stock last year through a triennial stock grant. His annual salary was $2 million from 2020 to 2022, the filing said. The CEO’s compensation package also included nearly $6 million for personal safety in 2022.
Other Alphabet and Google executives earned about $22 million to $35 million in annual stock awards, according to the filing.
The report comes as Alphabet embarks on cost restructuring measures, including layoffs in January that eliminated 12,000 workers, or 6% of its workforce. Google’s CFO Ruth Porat announced in early April that the company would limit employee laptops and services to further reduce costs.
