Who Are The Highest Paid Tech CEOs

While some tech CEOs, including Facebook head Mark Zuckerberg and Google cofounders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, have opted to receive a $1 annual salary, others are still bringing in the big bucks.

The New York Times recently put together a list of the 200 highest-paid CEOs in America. Many of them run tech companies.

Only chief executives leading companies with a market capitalization of at least $1 billion were considered.

While longtime CEOs like Larry Ellison and Marc Benioff are no strangers to lists like this one, there were some surprises. Here are 17 highest-paid tech CEOs from the list.
