How to Delete Owner on Google My Business

I am a digital marketing strategist for flyte new media. We handle many social media accounts for our clients. I went to claim a Google My Business page for our client, under their email address but it defaulted and went back to mine. I am now the primary owner. Is there a way for me to delete myself from our clients business page?

IMHO there are two options:

 

the hard method:

 

just delete it from your dahsboard and it will revert to an unverified listing - no one else is owning it anymore until any someelse is going to claim it again.

or

the soft method:

 

invite anyone else to become an admin and bit later make this user to an owner of the listing.

Once having done this you can finish your own ownership

Yep, I would go with Helmut's second option. Invite the client's account to be an owner of the listing. Once they accept the invitation you can then make them the primary owner. After that you could remove yourself (or reduce yourself to a lesser role).
