American Systems has promoted Sheri Murphy, former director of information technology governance, risk and compliance, to vice president of quality assurance and continuous improvement.
The 24-year company veteran will advise the leadership team on matters related to program and risk management, quality assurance and corporate business standards in the newly created position, American Systems said Monday.
Murphy will also be responsible for developing and implementing an integrated management system for efforts at the Chantilly, Virginia-based government contractor to address International Organization for Standardization requirements for quality, service management and information security.
“Sheri has led us through the rigors of maintaining and growing our quality certifications while ensuring we remain compliant with a wide array of government regulations and directives,” said Peter Smith, president and CEO of American Systems and three-time Wash100 Award recipient.
Murphy's career at American Systems includes work related to IT, policy compliance and change management. She most recently served as director for IT governance, risk, and compliance.
