Dodworth, who joined Bite in October 2003, will launch Sea Glass PR after his final day at Bite on 11 August.
‘I've always wanted to do this and friends and family are supporting me,' said Dodworth. ‘With 20 years' agency experience I can offer a lot as a consultant.'
Dodworth expects to work for clients on both sides of the Atlantic from a base in the Midlands, working across the tech, automotive, retail and financial-services sectors.
He will continue to work as a part-time consultant for Bite.
Bite has not yet decided whether it will replace Dodworth.
