Grahame Maher Charitable Fund

Grahame Maher was the CEO of Vodafone Qatar, but much more than that, he was an inspirational man, a great coach and mentor, and above all a good friend.  Grahame himself made a difference to the lives of everyone he touched.

Grahame passed away on 2 November 2010 and we all miss his inspiration and vision, his passion and energy for life, and his love for all the people he worked with.


Grahame had worked for Vodafone for almost 15 years, holding CEO positions in New Zealand, Australia, Sweden, Czech Republic and most recently Qatar.
The Vodafone Qatar Foundation, which is the charitable arm of Vodafone Qatar, has established the


Grahame Maher Charity Fund to accept donations from people wanting an opportunity to commemorate Grahame and what he stood for.


Grahame’s passion was “people” especially entrepreneurial women. Grahame’s wife Jenny and other people who worked with him in the countries he lived in will be focussing on scholarships for his passion to continue –“To make a world of Difference”.


Grahame had planned to join Vodafone Qatar’s cycling Team on the GBI trip in 2011 and we look forward to raising money to continue Grahame’s legacy to make a world of difference.
