Remove/Change Admin Name from WhoIS

Category: Domain Names

Our account pays for the Domain Privacy service. However, an employee has their name set as the admin name when performing a Whois search. His name should not be there at all, if any name had to be there it should be the name of the company. Is there any way to change this?

Thank you.
