(Nasdaq) IT17-amat-092216-nasdaq In honor of the occasion, Gary Dickerson, President and CEO, will ring the Closing Bell. Applied Materials, Inc. (Nasdaq: AMAT), the leader in materials engineering solutions used to produce virtually every new chip and advanced display in the world, will visit the Nasdaq MarketSite in Times Square.

While media companies dominate the list of top paid CEOs, leaders of tech companies aren’t far behind.

Combined, the top 30 CEOs in tech made $662 million in 2016, according to a new report out from Equilar, an executive compensation data firm, in partnership with the New York Times.

The study only looked at executives at publicly-traded companies with more than $1 billion in revenue that had filed proxy statements before May 1.

Each exec’s total compensation for 2016 includes salary, cash bonuses, the grant-date value of stock option awards, and other compensation, which includes perks like security expenses.

Of the list of the top 200 highest-paid CEOs, 30 are in the tech industry, helming companies that make everything from semiconductors to cloud services.

Here’s which tech CEOs brought home the most bacon in 2016:
