Grass Roots chairman David Evans told Event her abrupt departure was "bizarre".

Litzow is the second high-profile departure this year after global head of events Nick Bender announced he was leaving in July.

Grass Roots chairman Evans has interviewed around a third of the company’s 160 staff in the last two weeks to better understand the business and make new internal appointments.

"I feel like a chairman of a football club that didn’t know his players. I left Nick Bender in charge and he decided to up sticks and go," he told Event.

He added: "It’s been really energising and motivating to [interview staff] because there’s a lot of bright people there who need some proper leadership."
