Immigrants’ stories

Moncton

Ola Akinmokun,
Owner, Isaac Lawson Stylish Clothiers

A graduate of the University of Ibadan, Ibadan, Nigeria, Ola acquired a diploma in Business Administration. Prior to moving to New Brunswick Ola completed a diploma in journalism as a resident of the Republic of Ireland.

As a boy Ola was inspired by uniforms and classy attire sported by both genders. His father (a clothing salesman who later started and grew his first business, and then started other successful businesses) helped to guide him through his entrepreneurial journey.

Apprenticing and learning about New Brunswick’s fashions and chain stores, management and sales technique, Ola Akinmokun’s dreamt of owning, operating and building his own apparel business. That dream became reality when Ola formed “Isaac Lawson Stylish Clothiers Inc.” in 2010 in Moncton.

Ola now hopes to expand his clothing chain and eventually manufacture his designs in Moncton, employing his fellow New Brunswickers to supply stores across Canada and export into the United States.

An entrepreneur, Ola’s style matches his gentle personality. A quiet family man, he and his family bring to Moncton earthly views entrenched in sound values and a genuine regard for their fellow man. Ola’s and his family’s integrity is beyond reproach. He is a member of Moncton’s Cornerstone Chapel of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, donating much time to his parish, its congregation and to the Moncton community.

Anja Bardelmann,
Body and Tone Massage, Gallie Wellness Center

Anja Bardlemann was born in Cologne, Germany. With diplomas in physiotherapy and massage therapy, Anja opened her first physiotherapy and massage clinic in Germany. She owned and operated this venture for 13 years prior to moving to New Brunswick in 2008.

Today Anja owns and operates the successful New Brunswick business, Body Tone and Massage, located in the Gallie Wellness Centre. With international certifications, education is ongoing with annual course requirements and study abroad. Anja also provides workshops for parents and children in a variety of health areas.

Anja is a participant in the Moncton Business Immigrant Mentorship Program (BIMP). The program matches immigrants with a local business owner in a similar field, offering immigrants an opportunity to learn how to grow a successful Canadian business, and Canadians a chance to learn more about foreign markets.

Anja and her husband like Moncton, its size, its concerts, theatres, sports facilities, parks and green spaces, restaurants and other amenities and they value New Brunswick`s clean rivers and lakes. They encourage people from Germany to immigrate to New Brunswick, a province with landscapes similar to those in her birth country.
