Andrea Anderson Joins SkyWater

Andrea Anderson to Head SkyWater Search Partners’ Expanded HR Recruiting Practice

March 31, 2020

SkyWater Search Partners is pleased to welcome Andrea Anderson to lead our newly expanded Human Resources placement practice area. With sixteen years of experience in human resources and recruiting leadership roles, Andrea is uniquely qualified to join and lead SkyWater’s rapidly expanding HR practice area.

“The HR practice at SkyWater has been growing very quickly over the past few years, completing roles anywhere from the HR Manager level to CHRO. We determined that our next phase of growth in this space would come from a leader within the HR industry with a strong executive recruiting background, but also someone that has exceptional functional HR expertise who knows the in’s and out’s of the ever-changing HR world. Someone that knows how to identify strong HR talent, and someone that clients enjoy partnering with on a personal level. With that in mind, we couldn’t be more excited to have Andrea join the SkyWater team and lead our HR practice!

“I’ve worked with Andrea from a client perspective for a while, and have seen her outstanding abilities as an executive recruiter, valued relationship partner, and most importantly, her values as a person. When we had the opportunity to bring her over to the executive search side to lead our HR practice, we jumped at the chance. We’re looking forward to seeing Andrea drive continued growth in one of our fastest-growing practice areas at SkyWater!”

– Adam Hoffarber, Partner

Before joining SkyWater, Andrea spent seven years at Securian Financial in several HR leadership roles and led their Executive Recruitment function for the past two years. Prior to that, she was a recruiting expert with Travelers. She is a graduate of the University of Minnesota and holds an SPHR certification.   

“As a career HR practitioner, I understand the unique challenges facing the HR function and the impact the right HR hire can make on an organization. Today, more than ever, businesses are leaning on their HR leaders to navigate through a host of challenges from changing legislation, to hiring strategies and employee engagement. My aim is to be an added and continued resource for businesses needing to make the perfect hire today. I’m thrilled to lead the HR practice area and join the talented SkyWater team; they are truly the best in the business.”
