As Sally Field noted at the Oscars in 1995, “you really like me!” That’s how our Channel People on the Move segment – this month featuring Avant, VMware and Zayo – feels. You once again last month flocked to see the biggest new hires and promotions in the industry.

For instance, traditional telecom master agents and tech distributors are well represented here. Avant, Telarus and TBI all made noteworthy moves, from naming new channel managers to cloud specialists. D&H Distributing hired a specialist to work with the company’s Nextiva account.

SolarWinds, which has made news all year for the massive hack that infiltrated customers and government entities, didn’t fire anyone as a result. But it did make some new hires to beef up defenses.

The cable companies also got into the act. Cox Business gave a regular Channel Futures contributor a promotion. Furthermore, a company that works closely with cablecos to onboard MSPs, hired a senior director of strategic alliances.

If only we could include all of the channel’s new hires and promotions — but your passion for this recurring segment might break the internet! Our slideshow above features a few dozen people who climbed the ladder in May. Don’t forget — you can keep up with people on the move all month long on our page dedicated to the topic.

If you missed last month’s edition, it’s available here.
