Leo Melamed

In Leo Melamed’s recently released, definitive memoir, Man of the Futures, he recounts his journey from Holocaust survivor and accidental runner at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) to one of the most prominent leaders in the world of finance. At 33, Melamed gave up a promising law career to pursue his dream of becoming a full-time pit-trader at the CME. He quickly ascended the ranks to become chairman. From there, he set out to disrupt the status quo and ultimately transform both the exchange itself and the broader finance industry.
