my old company is popping up on the right side of a google search for my new company's name

My company is "Best Agent Today" but when searched on google "Top Agent Today" (Our old site) pops up. We do not remember our username or password for the google account that we set the business up with so we cannot get in to change the company address/phone number/pictures/name. An old employee may have used her email or phone number so we dont have a way to recover the account. Is there any way we can get into our account?

 

Thanks!

You may also want to contact GMB support and ask them to mark the old page as moved. It's very important that you specify "moved", and not "closed".
