There are reasons to celebrate and reasons for concern in our latest top stories countdown. The top channel stories from August feature VMware partner program changes and more investments from Google Cloud.

For celebration, we recognize two business leaders who are moving on: Verizon‘s Sarah Marsh and AT&T Business’ Anne Chow. We also put a spotlight on the fastest-growing companies in the 2022 Channel Futures MSP 501.

On the flip side, we reported on a lot of job cuts in August. Not surprising that such alarming news would land in our countdown several times.

But we aren’t the ones who select the top 20 — you do. We aggregate results of most-read stories from our website and our newsletters. You can sign up for those here.

In the meantime, see our top 20 countdown for August in the slideshow above. What was No. 1? And if you missed last month’s countdown, it’s here.
