Google My Business best practice

Hi Guys,

Could someone share with me best Google practice.
We have a current Gmail account set up and added a verified Google Biz page. Unfortunately, the Gmail account owner (of our business) wants to keep this account for personal use....only
So he suggested we set up a new Gmail account, so then the business can use other Google apps like AdWords, webmaster tools Etc- thus not affecting his already existing account.
Is it bad practice to set up a new Gmail account and create a new Goggle Biz page, when one has been created already.
Thank you
