Within Teamwork, you can choose a user on your project to be the project owner.

Adding a project owner allows your team to have a clear point of contact for the project. A project owner can be set from either the project's overview page or the project settings. 

Note: Only project administrators and site administrators can set and update the project owner.

Overview

To add an owner from the project overview page choose the Not set option within the left pane.
