According to a review of Thomas K. McCraw, Jeffrey L. Cruikshank's book The Intellectual Venture Capitalist: John H. McArthur and the Work of the Harvard Business School, 1980-1995, McArthur's trademark is "his commitment to creating a collaborative community."

McArthur had previously served as Chair of the Board for the Brigham and Women's Hospital. He has served on numerous boards and is currently the Chairman of Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada, based in Vancouver.
