New to the gaming industry, Macke will be leaving her post as vice president of global marketing for Hewlett-Packard’s handheld business. She also has held executive positions with Nokia and IBM.

"IGT’s new attitude," said Eric Tom, executive vice president of sales and marketing, "calls for a new way of looking at how we market our products. Susan’s track record is in line with our goal of being a marketing-driven company."
