Google’s Schmidt Made $101M in 2011

What a difference a year makes. After earning just $313,219 in 2010, Google’s Chairman Eric Schmidt raked in more than $101 million last year in salary, stock options, and other compensation. The former CEO received almost $94 million in shares and options (which will vest over a four-year period) and millions more in other compensation, according to Google's regulatory filing. Schmidt stepped down from his position as CEO in 2011, handing control of the company to co-founder Larry Page and transitioning to executive chairman.
