The President of Brazoria is the head of state, head of government, and chief executive of the Republic of Brazoria. They are also the commander-in-chief of the Brazorian Armed Forces. Brazorian presidents are styled as His Excellency or Her Excellency, a privilege which continues for former presidents.

The president is vested with broad executive powers and responsibilities. The Constitution of Brazoria empowers the president: to execute and enforce federal law; to appoint officials in the executive branch, judiciary, and bureaucracy; to accredit, send, and receive ambassadors and diplomatic dignitaries; to issue pardons, reprieves, commutations, and clemencies for all crimes except high crimes and treason; to conclude treaties with foreign powers; and to represent Brazoria internationally as the head of state. The president also plays a role in the legislative process as they have the power to sign all congressional bills into law or to veto them. The president is also responsible for setting the government's agenda and may use their power to influence policymaking in Congress. The president may issue executive orders or regulatory proclamations which have the full effect of statutory law, but may be revoked by succeeding presidents, or overturned by the Supreme Court. The presidency is the primary institution in Brazoria which is responsible for conducting Brazorian foreign policy and military defense. The president has access to Brazoria's nuclear arsenal and is authorized to activate it.

The president is indirectly elected by the Electoral College of Brazoria to a four-year term, along with the vice president. Terms are renewable without term limitations. The president may be removed from office prior to the end of their term if they are impeached and convicted by Congress. In the event the president is removed from office (such as by impeachment or death) or is otherwise unable to exercise their duties as president, the vice president succeeds them, or whomever is the next in line in accordance to the presidential line of succession.

The current president is Rick Perry, who was first elected in 2012, and won re-election twice (2016 and 2020). He is a member of the Rangers and Riggers Party (R&RP).
