Grahame Maher, the CEO of Vodafone Qatar, has died after a short illness
02 November, 2010: Vodafone Qatar sadly announces the passing of its chief executive office, Grahame Maher.
The whole Vodafone family including its board of directors and employees extend their condolences to his wife Jenny Maher, to his daughters Jessica and Kate, and to his wider family.
Grahame came to Qatar in 2008 to set-up Vodafone Qatar with the purpose of making a world of difference for all the people in Qatar.
Grahame himself made a difference to the lives of everyone he touched. He was a great CEO, coach, mentor, and friend. We will all sorely miss his inspiration and vision, his passion and energy, and his love for all the people he worked with.
Im dumbfouded, I can't believe this has happened to such a fit, active lovable guy who was so full of life and had so much more to give the world. He was a CEO but yet so down to earth.
I will always remember my husband and I offering him a lift to his hotel in my KA and he wouldn't even let me sit in the back instead he scrambled into the back seat, that was Grahame all over, so humble, just one of the guys.
He will be missed by so many, as wherever he went he brought that little sprinke of magic fairy dust that would light up a room, light up a team and inspire people to do better.
my deep condolences to his family and Vodafone staff in all over the world he was a great guy
