A former employee set up Google My Business pages for 17 of our offices. How do we get back ownership and verify these accounts? HELP

Hi @SmartWatt

Ideally you'd contact the current owner of the listing and ask them to transfer ownership to you.
If that's not an option, you can request ownership transfer
. https://support.google.com/business/answer/4566671
Fill out the form. You have the option to include a message to the current owner to contact you directly.
The current listing owner will receive an email asking them to get in touch with you, and you’ll receive a confirmation email. Allow a full 7 days for the current listing owner to respond to your request. If you don’t hear back after 7 days, contact support by replying to the confirmation email.
