Transferring organization ownership

To make someone else the owner of an organization account, you must add a new owner and then remove yourself from the account.

  1. If you're the only member with owner privileges, give another organization member the owner role. For more information, see "Appointing an organization owner."

  2. Contact the new owner and make sure he or she is able to access the organization's settings.

  3. Remove yourself from the organization.
