Master agents and distributors continue to invest hiring, suppliers and acquisitions.

Now that we’ve brought together the Channel Partners Online and Channel Futures websites, we’re putting our quarterly updates of master agents and distributors in the same place. Yes, these company types can differ significantly from one another. But both play a key mediating role between the end-partner and the vendor. Both also function as key resources for partners looking for training, technical support and advocacy.

We assembled 17 of the first quarter’s biggest master and disti stories to get you caught up. In many cases, the news is financial in nature. Of course we feature the multibillion-dollar transaction between two large distributors that will shape the future of the channel. Our recap also includes our discussion of the ominous FCC rural health care ruling that could significantly impact the agent channel.

View the slideshow above to see the latest updates in the world of technology distribution.
