Google Founders Earn a Buck in 2017
Both executives, of course, are multibillionaires, due to the amount of stock they own in the company they run.
Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin each earned a single dollar for running parent company Alphabet in 2017, according to a regulatory filing Friday.
Page, the Alphabet CEO, and Brin, the Alphabet president, also earned the same amount the year prior, and the year before that, though both are multibillionaires, due to the amount of stock they own in the company they run.
Eric Schmidt, the former executive chairman of Alphabet and current technical adviser, was paid $4.7 million in 2017, up from $4.3 million a year prior.
Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google, was compensated with $1.3 million, though he earned just shy of $200 million a year prior and $100.6 million a year before that.
Shares of Alphabet rose 36 percent in 2017.
