Kicking 2020 to the curb, some of the channel’s biggest names didn’t let any dust gather on 2021. The likes of Vonage, Avaya and Telarus unleashed big news in January — landing in our latest top 12 countdown.

For instance, the aforementioned companies all introduced new personnel — a channel chief, cloud sales leader and CRO, respectively.

But the news of the month went well beyond personnel announcements. Sangoma announced the acquisition of Star2Star, giving us the most significant M&A from January.

There were also a pair of “reruns,” with articles about Windstream and Frontier bankruptcies again rearing their heads on our top 12 countdown.

Those were just a few of the stories getting your attention last month.
