Benjamin Franklin was one of the Founding Fathers and a genius. He helped create the American system of government. However, he never served as president.
However, in 1785 he was elected as President of Pennsylvania Executive Council which, in those days was a position similar to a governor. Another interesting fact, Benjamin Franklin is one of only two non-presidents to appear on US paper currency. Franklin appears on the US$100 bill; Alexander Hamilton appears on the US$10 bill.
The last statement above needs a modifier. Salmon P. Chase is on the $10,000 bill, of which, according to the US Treasury, there are still 336 known to be in circulation.

Nobody. The United States did not come into existence until 1776 and Franklin was born in 1706. When Ben Franklin was born, there was no President. America was still a collection of British colonies.
George Washington is actually the first president of the United States of America while Ben Franklin was never a president at all. Ben Franklin does receive the distinction of being the only person who was not a president whose face is on American currency. Ben Franklin's face graces the $100 dollar bill.
