Removing "owner" in Team Projects

The company I work for edits their shows using team projects. We've recently run into an issue in which an editor was let go and no longer has an adobe log in. He had unshared changes before he left and we thought to just remove him as a collaborator. Unfortunately he was the owner of the project and we are looking to change ownership or find another way to remove him from the project. Anyone have a workaround for this?

Under an enterprise license you need an admin account with a special team projects capability, that allows for a dom call for 'SetOwner' to change the Team Project owner. This option is not available for a Creative Cloud Team license.
As a workaround you could create a duplicate of the Team Project. Any collaborator can open the Team Project and choose 'Files > Save as...'. The duplicate team Project will have the 'collaborator' set as the 'owner'. The caveat here is that the Team Project version history and current collaborators are not copied.

Not sure if this is the same problem, but I was locked out of a Team Project because the 'owner' left the company. I found that (from inside a different team proj) using Edit > Team Project > Browse Versions I could navigate to the Auto-Saves in the folders and then in project list right-click > New Team Project From Auto-Save. You can choose new owner and collaborators here.

[It initially fails to open bc of 'network error' but on next launch the new version will be in the list]

May not be perfect as it is presumably from the computer's last auto save. But still something. Just in case that helps someone.
