Fairfax's restructure of its business publications into one unit has hit a snag with the departure of business media boss Brett Clegg.

Brett Clegg, the head of business media at Fairfax, has left the company and will be replaced by Sydney Morning Herald editor-in-chief Sean Aylmer. Sources say Clegg will return to a senior role at News Corp Australia, where he previously served as deputy CEO of The Australian.

A possible job for Clegg is the vacant post of News Corp’s NSW regional director, which would give him oversight of The Daily Telegraph, The Sunday Telegraph and a raft of regional papers. The job has been vacant since Michael Miller left to run APN News & Media in April.
