It’s not a googol, but Trade Desk Inc.’s nine-figure compensation package for founder Jeff Green is the largest yet disclosed for any chief executive officer in 2021.

The Ventura, California-based ad-tech company awarded Green pay valued at more than $830 million, according to a recent filing. That’s more than the compensation for each of KKR & Co.’s new co-CEOs, Joseph Bae and Scott Nuttall, or Blackstone Inc.’s Stephen Schwarzman.
