Financial Services Forum: 

Few names hold such prestige in the Chicagoland Financial Landscape as Leo Melamed’s, Chairman Emeritus of CME Group. Melamed’s storied life and career, from his journey to America as a Holocaust survivor, to his accidental beginnings in finance as a runner on the options floor have transformed how Chicago and the world at large view financial markets. In his recently published memoir, Man of the Futures, Melamed explores his life and career, including the ways he modernized, diversified, and pushed for innovation in finance and transformed the trading world.

Join the Executives’ Club of Chicago and moderator Terry Savage, Nationally Syndicated Columnist as she sits down with Leo to discuss his early days in finance in Chicago, the growth and evolution of trading and markets, how Leo’s innovative nature led to technological advances in the trading industry and more.
