When Snap goes public this week, Chief Executive Evan Spiegel's salary will drop to just $1.
But between his 44 percent voting share in the company and last year's total compensation of $2.4 million, Spiegel is sitting pretty among other recent tech CEOs.
In fact, Spiegel's base salary puts him at the top of the list of big tech start-ups that have gone public in the past decade, according to data provided by Equilar, which tracks board and executive compensation. Equilar looked at SEC filings for Snap and other recent tech IPOs to compare chief executive compensation in the year before going public.
Snap is expected to be valued at upwards of $20 billion when it's priced after the close of markets on Wednesday. That would put the photo and video messaging company ahead of the other tech IPOs we considered, with the exception of Facebook.
