Intel Corp. boosted Chief Executive Officer Brian Krzanich’s compensation package 30 percent to $19.1 million last year, fueled by a bigger stock award and costs for his personal security arrangements.

Intel’s board awarded Krzanich, 56, stock worth $11.7 million, a 20 percent increase from 2015, according to a proxy statement Thursday. The CEO also received $1.25 million in salary, $3.7 million in bonuses, about $2.13 million in security services, plus other smaller items.
