To add a person to the list of site collection administrators in SharePoint 2010, click on Site Actions/Site Settings. Then, under ‘Users and Permissions’, you’ll see a ‘Site collection administrators’ link.
Click that link and just use the people picker to add the person to the group. Then, that person will have more options on the Site Settings page from which to choose.
