From Fedora Project Wiki

The Fedora Project Leader (FPL) is ultimately accountable for everything that happens within Fedora and in particular is responsible for maintaining Red Hat's relationship with Fedora and vice versa. He/She is Fedora's President, CEO, Chairman, Fearless Leader, whatever-you-want-to-call-it. However the project leader is not a dictator, benevolent or otherwise. The FPL leads the Fedora Project Board and strives to do it by consensus.

The FPL is a full-time, Red Hat-employed job. .
