Sundar Pichai
United States




Pichai spent his first 11 years at Google as a leader in the development of signature products such as Chrome, Gmail and Google Maps. His performance there was so impressive that when Google was made a division of newly created parent company Alphabet Inc. in 2015, he was tapped to be its leader. In 2016, Pichai’s first full year as CEO, his compensation package totaled more than $199 million (mostly in stock) then dipped to a mere $1,333,557 in 2017 —but that’s still a long way from his youth in India, where he shared a two-room apartment with his brother and parents. He is continuing to speak for Google in the wake of President Trump and congressional claims that the company’s search results are “rigged.”
