If you mean the language, then the Haskell-prime committee is in charge.

If you mean the compiler everyone uses (de-facto), then the two Simons  
are in charge.

If you mean the website, online resources, and money earned from GSoC  
or donated, then there is a committee being set up right now to decide  
policy on those kinds of things.

If you mean academic research into Haskell, then of course no-one is  
in charge, and everyone does what they see fit (and can get funding  
for).  But there is a steering committee for the annual Haskell  

There are also other bodies like the Industrial Haskell Group, who  
will typically have some small committee in charge of their (more  
restricted) focus area.
