April 3 (Bloomberg) -- Intel Corp.’s Brian Krzanich, a 32-year veteran of the chipmaker who was elevated to chief executive officer last May, saw his compensation last year drop 40 percent from 2012, when he received a large stock award.

Krzanich was paid a total of $9.6 million last year, including $887,500 in salary, $6.58 million in stock and option awards and $1.87 million in non-equity incentive compensation, the company said today in a filing. In 2012, when he was chief operating officer, he was given a total of $15.9 million, including $13.2 million in stock and options.

Krzanich, 53, is trying to jump start Intel’s progress in areas outside of personal computers, where the Santa Clara, California-based company’s processors are in eight out of 10 devices sold. He’s focusing on tablets, smartphones and wearables, which are denting demand for PCs.

Intel, the world’s largest chipmaker, will this year begin changing its pay structure and require more executives to own stock and tie bonuses to operating goals. The moves, following input from investors, are aimed at connecting pay more closely with the company’s financial performance.
