That is what the mentors are for. AFAIK there is no Chair role for
PPMCs. Electing one is typically done when the board resolution is
written. Usually the person picking up the tab of writing the reports
and instigating committer votes is the person to be picked as the
Chair.

Assigning a Chair role in a podling while incubating probably is a bad
idea as it invites BDFL proliferation...
