Pichai, the former deputy of Google co-founder Larry Page, was named to run the search engine unit following the reorganization into holding company Alphabet last year. The award is the biggest ever given to a Google executive officer whose equity grants have to be reported in filings, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. It is Pichai’s first award since taking over the company’s highest-grossing unit.

Alphabet also awarded $42.8 million in restricted stock to Diane Greene, a co-founder and former CEO of software maker VMware Inc., who’s led Google’s cloud business since November. Greene received equity worth $148 million last year after Google acquired tech company Bebop Technologies Inc., which she founded. Chief Financial Officer Ruth Porat, who joined from Morgan Stanley last year, received equity worth $38.3 million that will vest under the same conditions as Pichai’s award, afiling shows.

An Alphabet spokesman didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Google typically grants equity awards to executives once every two years, a strategy it has said “encourages executives to take a long-term view of the business.”
