QS/1 President Tammy Devine to Retire 

Jun 2017

At QS/1 Tammy Devine, who has served as president of the company since 2011, has announced her retirement to take place later this year. Devine was hired in 1982 as a programmer by the late Jim Smith, son of the founder of J M Smith Corporation, at a time when personal computers where changing the business landscape. She went on to hold a number of managerial positions, including software development, marketing, and operations. During her time with QS/1, the company has grown to become a leader in pharmacy and government 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,” says Devine. “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, Devine holds a B.S. in computer science and an M.B.A. from the Darla Moore School of Business. She is also a graduate of the advanced management program at the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University. She has been very active in community and industry organizations, having served as two-time president of the American Society for Automation in Pharmacy and secretary/treasurer of the American Pharmacy Alliance. Devine has held leadership positions with the Spartanburg Area Chamber of Commerce, served as a board member for Quality Counts of Spartanburg, served on the board of trustees at Converse College, has been a commissioner for Spartanburg Community College, served on the South Carolina State Board for Technical and Comprehensive Education, and currently serves on the J M Smith Foundation board. In 2012 she was named a Spartanburg Methodist College Pioneering Woman of the Year, and in 2013 was added to the Spartanburg Community College Wall of Fame.
