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.
