Tammy Devine to Retire as President of QS/1

Tammy Devine to Retire as President of QS/1Tammy Devine, President of QS/1, has announced that she will retire later this year. Tammy began her career with QS/1 35 years ago as a programmer. She became president in 2011 after holding a series of managerial roles, including executive vice president. A national search is currently underway for her successor.

“Tammy will be missed tremendously,” said Alan Turfe, Chairman and CEO of J M Smith Corporation. “Her leadership at QS/1 has been phenomenal, and I am very grateful to her. I am very impressed with her strategic vision and the foundation she leaves behind – a committed and talented set of employees ready to embrace opportunities in the market.”

Tammy was hired in 1982 as a programmer by the late Mr. Jim Smith, son of the founder of J M Smith Corporation, at a time when PCs were changing the business landscape. She went on to hold a number of managerial positions in the company, including Software Development, Marketing, and Operations. During her time with QS/1, the company has grown to become a leader in pharmacy and governmental management software, with a footprint in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

“The time is right for me to step down,” said Tammy. “Our latest product, SharpRx®, has been successfully launched, we reorganized our processes to improve both quality and customer satisfaction and our employee engagement scores are at an all-time high. Leaving a company I love will naturally be hard, but everyone who knows me will tell you that I am looking forward to having more time to spend with my grandchildren.”

A graduate of the University of South Carolina, Tammy holds a BS in Computer Science and an MBA from the Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina. She is also a graduate of the Advanced Management Program at the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University.

She is very active in the community as well as in the industry, having been a two-time president of the American Society for the Automation of Pharmacy, secretary/treasurer of the American Pharmacy Alliance and has held leadership positions with the Spartanburg Area Chamber of Commerce and served as a board member for Quality Counts of Spartanburg. She served on the Board of Trustees at Converse College, been a commissioner for Spartanburg Community College, served on the South Carolina Board for Technical Education and currently serves on the J M Smith Foundation Board. She has devoted time to her church’s graphics team and children’s programs and has been a Helping Hand Leader for the Boys & Girls Club of Spartanburg. In 2012, she was named Spartanburg Methodist Pioneering Business Woman of the Year, and was added to the Spartanburg Community College Wall of Fame in 2013.
