QS/1 said Tuesday that it has begun a national search for a successor to Devine, who has served as president since 2011 and has been with the J M Smith Corp. subsidiary for 35 years.
“The time is right for me to step down,” Devine said in a statement. “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.”
Devine was hired in 1982 as a programmer by the late Jim Smith, son of the founder of J M Smith Corp. She went on to hold a number of managerial positions in the company, including executive vice president, in such areas as software development, marketing and operations. In addition, Devine was a two-time president of the American Society for the Automation of Pharmacy and has served as secretary/treasurer of the American Pharmacy Alliance.
QS/1 noted that during her tenure, the company grew to become a leader in pharmacy and governmental management software, with a footprint in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
“Tammy will be missed tremendously,” stated Alan Turfe, chairman and chief executive officer of J M Smith Corp. “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.”
