The only admin in my board has left the organization. I need to change the admin

The only admin in my board has left the organization, in which we have deleted the emaila account before knowing that he was the only admin of the board that we are currently using. I become his replacement, yet I can't change the admin setting since the account is no longer there. 

How should I change the admin of the board?
