    In all honesty, I think consul is pretty reasonable. Periclesian could be an interesting title for Greco derived republics.

    Doge (Venice was a republic)
    Consul.
    Dictator.
    Lord Protector.
    Premier
    Chairman.
    General Secretary.
    Franklin or Washington (as a last name tacked on in the style of the Caesars). So it would be like - John Adams Washington, FDR Franklin, Abraham Lincoln Washington.

    In New Jersey, many counties are governed by a Board of Chosen Freeholders. Try "First Freeholder" or "Chief Freeholder".
