David Hoath latest casualty of Fairfax restructure

Fairfax’s chief operating officer of Metro Media, David Hoath, is the latest head to roll as part of the Fairfax restructure announced last week.

Hoath sent out an email this morning announcing the decision, saying he was proud to have been associated with The Age.

“I have been extremely fortunate to have had the chance of working with some outstanding and talented people who continue to innovate and deliver excellence despite massive structural changes to our business,” he wrote in the email obtained by Marketing.

Hoath was responsible for The Age, Sydney Morning Herald, Canberra Times and a host of other print and digital businesses.

He will now take time to consider his next steps, after his nearly eight-year tenure with Fairfax.
