McKaela Baldus

Senior Associate, Marketing

As a Senior Associate at SkyWater Search, McKaela currently leads the marketing & communications division. She personally works a “full desk” as well. The marketing discipline focuses on leadership and executive-level searches for companies of all sizes in Minnesota seeking to hire local talent.

With a decade of experience as a Twin Cities recruiting and marketing leader, McKaela is uniquely positioned to lead SkyWater’s marketing & communications practice specialty, and achieve growth plans in this dynamic segment. 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 leverages 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.”

McKaela is a Minnesota native, having graduated from Chaska High School before attending Iowa State University, where she earned her marketing degree. When not at SkyWater, she reports to two of the strongest young women in the Twin Cities community, her young daughters, whose drive and high expectations have helped McKaela to become the expert Snack & Sandwich Chef she is today.
