Gaining an award topping $100 million in the restricted stock of Google Inc. the former CEO of Google, Eric Schmidt is wading in a cash windfall. In the last three years this personal feat of his has already been accomplished twice. Last year Schmidt got $6 million’s worth of a cash bonus for his significant contributions to Google Inc.
Schmidt has moved on up and over as he is working these days as Google’s executive chairman. Larry Page, one of the founders of Google, is working in the CEO slot at Google while Schmidt deals with the lofty tasks of company acquisitions, regulatory issues, and government relationships.
Not even 60 years old, Eric Schmidt has accumulated an $8 billion dollar fortune.
