Alchin Named to Polo Board

Comcast executive vice president, co-chief financial officer and treasurer John Alchin was named to the board of directors of fashion giant Polo Ralph Lauren.

Alchin, who is set to retire from Comcast at the end of the year, has been with the MSO since 1990. Prior to joining Comcast, Alchin was a managing director of Toronto Dominion Bank.

“John is a highly regarded executive, and I believe the wisdom he has gained during his long and impressive tenure at Comcast will be very valuable in helping us through our next phase of growth,” Polo Ralph Lauren CEO Ralph Lauren said in a prepared statement.

In addition to Alchin, the company named executive VP Jackwyn Nemerov to its board, bringing the total number of members to 11.

Alchin is also a board member at BNY Hamilton Funds and Big Brothers Big Sisters Southeastern Pennsylvania; an advisory-board member of MANNA (Metropolitan AIDS Neighborhood Nutrition Alliance); and a vice chairman of the corporate executive board of directors of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
