ImageQuest’s Sammi Jo Shutt has been promoted to Lead Information Security Analyst.
In this role, Sammi Jo will help hire, train, and develop a team of Information Security Advisors focused on doubling ImageQuest’s Advisory Services business for the third consecutive year.
ImageQuest hired Sammi Jo in January 2019 to join Lee Walton as a security analyst. She came to us from Verus Healthcare, an ImageQuest client where she served as Director of Licensure and Managed Care.
Sammi Jo has accomplished much at a relatively young age. After college, she began her career in compliance at a mid-sized healthcare company, and she was eventually responsible for Medicare licensure across the enterprise. Sammi Jo excelled at understanding and adapting to healthcare compliance.
As part of our growing IT Compliance services, Sammi Jo’s title evolved to Information Security Analyst this summer.
“Over the past three years, Sammi Jo has consistently served our regulated clients at the highest level, all the while seeking out opportunities to learn and develop her knowledge and skills,” said Milton Bartley, ImageQuest CEO.
“She’s developing a sterling reputation among not only the community banks she supports but also with the external audit firms working with those same banks. We regularly hear comments from auditors such as ‘I am so glad to see Sammi Jo and ImageQuest working on that with you. It will make our job so much easier.’
“Sammi Jo offers our regulated clients a workstyle that combines southern charm, an unwavering smile, and an uncanny intellect,” Bartley continued. “We’re excited to see her take this leadership role as she continues to build her expertise around regulatory requirements and share her ability to effortlessly translate that to clients in terms they can easily grasp.”
Sammi Jo is a graduate of the University of Memphis. She completed her master’s degree in healthcare management at Lipscomb University in December 2019.
