Account Owner change

Once an account is created, I can go in and change the account owner to a different account.  I am looking to also have this functionality available upon account creation.  Currently, when creating an account, owner is read only and I have no option to change it to a different user.  Is there a setting to allow the changing of an owner at record creation?

The only option for this would be to use a workflow rule if it was a standard operation.  For example all of our accounts, upon creation, the owner is changed to our integration user.  If it's not like that, then the functionality is similar to most objects that the owner is defaulted to the creator.
