New Company, Old Account

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I use to own company A but ended up selling it to my business partner. Now I own company B and would like to start an AdWords campaign for the new company. Problem is my email address is still linked with company A, even though company A no longer exists. I canceled the AdWords account months ago but when I try to open a new account Google sends me to company A's page and asks me to reactivate it.Is there a way for me to completely wipe out or over write company A's AdWord info with company B's or do I have to just toss this email address and open a new account with a new address? <--I REALLY don't want to do that

Hello,

 

You have to use a new email address to make it administrator for the old adwords account and to disconnect from it the old email address as explained here :
