Channel people at AWS, IBM, Cato Networks, Cloud Software Group and more are among the individuals making waves this week. Channel Futures’ Channel People Making Waves showcases those who have made an impact over the last seven days. (See our slideshow above.) It’s also a recap of the most-read stories on our website.

IBM made waves this week when it announced several executive changes to leadership. This was hot on the heels of the launch of the company’s new Partner Plus program. IBM is not keeping people guessing with these rapid-fire moves so early in the year.

Other companies are making early changes, too, just not so desirable ones for employees. Amazon announced layoffs affecting more than 18,000 workers. It may be the greatest number of layoffs within the tech industry in recent months. However, it doesn’t appear that AWS employees were casualties of the job cuts. This was our No. 2 most-read article of the week. Which layoff story made the top spot?

Finally, one channel leader made a name for himself at HPE, VMware and Check Point. He will now lead worldwide partner efforts at Cato Networks and has already stated his goals for the company. Read more about this executive in our roundup.

That’s a wrap for the week. And, if you didn’t catch our previous edition, you can find it here.
