Merging a Brand account with a GMB account (same business)

Hi guys, 

I am trying to merge a Brand account with another Brand account which has a verified GMB listings.
 
I know normally you would just delete the one and stick with the other, but unfortunately the Brand account has an actively managed Google+ page, G+ community and followers, so we are trying to merge it with the verified GMB account. Client does not want to delete the verified GMB account and go through verification process again with the Brand account. 

Thanks a lot for taking the time!

Hi Helmut, 

I appreciate that but I wanted to know if there's a way to have that manually done (merged) so that we don't have to delete an already established G+ (a community, posts, followers, etc) OR an already established GMB (reviews, etc.)? 

Edit: I wanted to clarify that the client does NOT want two accounts and thats why we are trying to merge, so sticking with the 2 separately is not an option. 

Thanks, 
Orlin
