The office of the president was established by the ratification of the Constitution of the United States of America in 1787. Prior to the ratification of the Constitution, under the Articles of Confederation, the presiding officer of the Congress of the Confederation was known as the President of the United States in Congress Assembled, and over a dozen men served served in that position. There was no executive branch, and the President of the Congress was merely a legislative position. Under the Constitution, the executive branch was formed, and the first United States President was elected for a four-year term by a college of Electors, who were chosen at first by the states, and then by plebiscite. George Washington was the first person elected president under the Constitution. (ENT novel: The Good That Men Do, historical accounts) He was inaugurated on 30 April 1789.
