Moving account access

I have a client that I will be taking over the management for. Unfortunatly they had someone setup the account using an email that they have no control over. Can an account be switched from one adwords user to another? The account owner will not object to this, we just need to know how to do it so we do not lose the history.

Thank you, but I think I missed something. How can I have it transfered from that third party? Do I call Google?

If I got you right the current owner had the account (his account) run by a 3rd party. Tom gave two scenarios how an account can be run by a 3rd party: For each one, he explained how your client can take control  over the account .
