Thank you for your question.
If you personally signed for the loan or credit cards then the only way to get your name off of them is to have the company refinance the loan without your name and have the credit cards issued with a new individual ultimately responsible.
If you merely have a credit card issued by the company in your name, then you can return the credit card. (This is different than being a signatory to the contract between the company and the credit card company.)
Please let me know if you have any other questions, or require clarification of this matter. Otherwise please hit "ACCEPT", so I may receive credit for my response. Tips and feedback are also appreciated.
If you and the CEO of the company signed the contract with the credit card company in to personally guarantee payment, they can come after either one of you for payment in the event the company does not pay the bill. If the credit card company only had you sign as an officer of the company and the company is only responsible for the credit cards, that affords you a layer of protection.
