Can I switch Google Business account to a new owner?

I sold my business in January of 2015. The new owner can't make changes to the Google Business account.  I thought I switched it over but I didn't. It appears the Google Business account is tightly married to my personal account.  Is there a way to switch it over so that he has no access to my personal Gmail, Calendar etc. without losing the business info and ranking or do I have to delete the business listing entirely and have the new owner start over? 

Lastly - is there some kind of Google Business customer service number I can call to just get some actual help from a real live person??
