John Carmack or Niklaus Wirth would be my favorites so far, 
although I'd consider the chances low.

Tim Sweeney (Unreal Engine). Obviously he works with C++, but has 
given talks about Haskell for example.

Cliff Click about Garbage Collection would be awesome as well.

 From Rust, there would be the initial creator Graydon Hoare, who 
is not really involved anymore, though. Maybe Steve Klabnik about 
community management and documentation? He does a really good job 
for Rust.

Getting Rich Hickeys opinion on D would be interesting.

Someone who knows a lot about C++ on iOS/Android?
