    Top Ilitch Holdings executive Chris Granger leaving the company


    Detroit — Chris Granger, a home-run hire when he was tapped by the Ilitches to oversee business operations for the Tigers, Red Wings and Little Caesars Arena, is poised to leave the organization, representatives from Ilitch Holdings announced Wednesday.

    Granger will become CEO of facilities, media and conferences for the Pennsylvania-based Oak View Group, which specializes in venue management and event programming.

    Granger will work his new job from the Metro Detroit area, telling The News, “We love it here.”

    “I would like to thank Chris Ilitch for the amazing opportunity to steward the business operations of two iconic teams, six world-class venues, and the hardest working people in sports and entertainment,” Granger said in a statement released by Ilitch Holdings. 

    “Chris has been a fantastic leader and trusted sounding board in our efforts to make Detroit a world leader in live entertainment. I look forward to unapologetically rooting for the Tigers and Red Wings, just as I will root for the employees of this organization, and the people of this city, for years to come.”
