  • Company: EMC
  • Cash compensation: $2.6 million
  • Stock and options: $14 million
  • Total compensation 1-yr. change: 25%

Tucci's base salary ($1.1 million) and target cash bonus ($1.5 million) have not increased since 2001, but that didn't not keep him off this year's list of highest-paid tech CEOs.

Like some other CEOs that made the list, Tucci is thinking about retirement, but EMC's (EMC) board has requested that he stay through at least February of 2015.

Total compensation is calculated as the sum of base salary, discretionary and performance-based cash bonuses, the grant-date fair value of stock and option awards during the fiscal year, and other compensation like benefits and perks. Equilar, an executive compensation research firm, prepared the data by looking at CEOs of technology companies that filed proxies by June 3, 2013.
