A Chicago native who began his career as a math teacher, Arbor joined the CBOT in 1965, spending a number of years as an independent trader.

In 1982 he was first elected to the CBOT's board of directors. He served as vice chairman from 1986 to 1988 and as chairman from 1993 to 1999.

It was also under his leadership that the CBOT formed a partnership with Eurex to provide an electronic trading platform for Treasury futures, a decisive change of course in the exchange’s history.[4]
