Judson Althoff – promoted last year to head a unified Microsoft worldwide commerce group – received $18.8 million in total compensation for the fiscal year, according to Microsoft.

The vendor did not report Althoff’s compensation for the year prior.

Althoff – whose formal title is executive vice president and chief commercial officer – received a base pay of $960,000, according to Microsoft.

Althoff’s stock awards were valued at $14.4 million. He received $3.4 million in non-equity incentive plan compensation. And he received $55,708 in “other compensation.”

His other compensation included $10,300 in retirement plan contributions and 401(k) plan matching plus $1,984 in broad-based plan benefits.

Those benefits include “payments in lieu of athletic club membership and credits for waived life insurance coverage under programs that are available to substantially all our U.S.-based employees,” according to Microsoft.

Althoff’s charitable gifts and matching charitable contributions amounted to $43,000, according to the vendor.

Among Althoff’s accomplishments during the fiscal year, according to the compensation committee, was taking on the leadership role of Microsoft Custom & Partner Solutions (MCAPS).

He made “hundreds of customer and partner engagements” and helped with diversity and sustainability efforts, including launching the Microsoft Cloud for Sustainability.
