How do you manage boards/teams with employee turnover of board/team admin(s)?

For those of you using the free version of Trello, how do you manage to use to the boards/teams effectively when you have turnover of employees leaving company that are often the administrators of the boards and/or teams?

Is there a way to setup a "global" General Administrator user/role that is not a specific person but has full admin permissions and always has to be setup on every board along with a "named person" administrator in case the "named person" is termintaed or leaves the oranization?

Do people with Business Class Trello or other PAID memberships have capabilities to address this challenge better than the FREE memberhip version?

Any help greatly appreciated!

What Matthew said above is exactly correct. Both the free and Gold versions of Trello are on a per-user basis; there is no way to have a super-admin over individual users. Business Class, however, is per Team, so you can have team-wide settings - such as team-wide admins. They have admin power over every board in the Team, so when someone leaves, it's very easy to remove them from the team and any boards, while bringing others in, even if the admin wasn't a board member in the first place.

Theres's not a feature like this with a free account.  For Business Class teams, team admins also have admin control over any board in the team itself, without needing to be invited by the board's admin.
