McKaela Baldus Joins Skywater

Baldus will expand the Marketing practice at Minnesota’s #1 ranked Executive Search Firm

McKaela Baldus - Marketing Recruiter In Minneapolis

February 21, 2020

SkyWater Search Partners is pleased to announce the hiring of McKaela Baldus to lead their newly expanded Marketing practice division. With over a decade of experience as a Twin Cities marketing recruiting leader, McKaela is uniquely positioned to help SkyWater achieve its 2020 growth plans in this dynamic segment.

We’ve been looking at expanding our Marketing practice for some time due to the market demand, but wanted to make sure we vetted many candidates with a variety of backgrounds within the industry before making this hire. We pursued McKaela based on her sterling decade plus reputation in the Minneapolis marketing recruiting space, along with our shared values and cultural fit with our team. We’re excited that she’s joining SkyWater, and look forward to her driving the expansion of our Marketing practice!

– Adam Hoffarber, Partner

Previously, McKaela served as Managing Director at Creatis, where her leadership skills and keen eye for top marketing talent helped the organization grow into one of the Twin Cities’ largest marketing staffing agencies. At SkyWater, she will leverage her deep understanding of marketing leadership and relationship management, as well as her trademark drive to “get clients what they need, the first time, every time,” to expand the practice.

SkyWater’s steady growth, dedication to uncovering hidden local talent, and mission to drive modern workplace culture in the twin cities, is what drew me to the company initially. From the minute I walked through the door I felt that I was walking into a place with positive energy, where employees enjoy coming to work, and genuinely enjoy connecting clients with top candidates. Once I understood what makes SkyWater different: offering 7 different recruiting disciplines, consulting on common workplace issues, and a focus on being a full-service partner to our clients, I knew this was the next step in my career. My purpose is to put renewed focus on the marketing and communications discipline to round out our professional services, and add to the growth already underway at the organization.
