President Martin BRUCKNER
"I would like to thank all voters very much for the trust they have placed in me. It fills me with an incredible amount of pride to serve SK Rapid as President with immediate effect! I am ready to make SK Rapid Wien - with all my experts in the presidium - successful again!
Yes, change is needed - but with the right sense of proportion! Over the last few years, I have been in the thick of things instead of just being there - I know the strengths, but also the weaknesses of SK Rapid Wien. And one thing is clear: a financially strong SK Rapid and long-term sporting success - these are our main goals! My team and I will do our best from now on to create the optimal framework for implementing all the necessary measures to achieve this."

"We need a constitutional convention. We have to give Rapid a legal corset for the third millennium, so that despite the progressing professionalisation - the spin-off of the profile area into a corporation - the Rapid values laid down in the mission statement are immovable. I am pleased that I will be able to bring SK Rapid a little further forward in the next few years as a member of the presidium. Thank you for your trust!"

"When someone asked me in the past how I felt about Rapid, I would say: "I have green blood".

"I bring international experience and many contacts from my time in Formula 1 - which I don't miss, by the way. I'm active in management, so I can also help with sponsorship. I want to be part of it, to build something new on the tradition that Rapid undoubtedly has. I am very proud to be a part of the SK Rapid presidium with immediate effect."
"Rapid is like an ocean liner that also needs to be navigated through rough seas from time to time. For this we need a captain who does his job on the bridge and does not party in the ballroom with the first-class guests. Therefore, Martin Bruckner is the right president for SK Rapid and we, the team of the Leitbild list, will support him in the best possible way as the presidium team. A big THANK YOU to everyone who has placed their trust in us for this."
"I am honoured that, for the first time in the history of SK Rapid, a former player of the club is represented on the board of directors (note: Günther Kaltenbrunner, a former professional player, was at the helm of the club as president in the late 1990s). I will do my best to make the club successful again! Creating the best framework conditions for this is one of my primary goals. Therefore, in the future I will primarily act as a link between the presidium and the sporting management. Thank you very much for your trust!"
