Bob Ray was a respected peer, beloved colleague and trusted mentor to many people in the futures industry. He spent many years working at brokerage firms, then joined the Chicago Board of Trade in 2002, where he helped create a more business-driven and customer-focused approach. After the Chicago Mercantile Exchange purchased the CBOT, Bob stayed with the organization and moved to Europe to build CME’s EMEA offices. Bob forged strong relationships with customers, he was equally comfortable working on a trading floor and leading an exchange, and above all, he was a passionate advocate for the futures industry for nearly 30 years.
