Looks like a good pitch for developers.  Here's my attempt for management:

For software project leaders looking to decrease the risk of software
construction in large componentized systems.  Haskell is a programming
language where software components can be built safely and predictably from
existing components without increasing the system's overall complexity.
Unlike Java or C, Haskell functions are called 'safe' because each function
either explicitly states its side effects or is guaranteed to have none.
