I am the owner of my business. Somehow I am listed as a manager in permissions. I have been following the instructions to try to contact the owner but because I am a manager they don't seem to be working.

since when are you listed as manager ?

Have youbefore this Manager status ever  tried to get the ownership transferred to you?

 

If not:

delete the listing formyour dashboard (it endedthe manager status aswell)

Then apply

@Helmut Geissler I am having this same issue - I'd like to become the owner of our GMB listings. As of now, someone else is Primary Owner (unchangable) and another person is Manager. Both of these folks are no longer with the company, and all of our listings are under an old (unused) email address. Do you know if any penalty would be had from deleting all of our listings and starting over from scratch? I've researched this and am unable to find an answer to this question. Any input is appreciated.

Helmut, 

I waited the 7 days for the request for ownership to expire. Then yesterday I proceeded to claim the business anew. Now I'm in as the owner, but it will not let me add any additional owners or managers. The screen comes up but the INVITE button does not seem to work. I thought maybe it was just too soon yesterday, so I gave up and came back to it this morning, it's still doing the same thing this morning though.
