Origin of "Vice President" term in Corporate America

The corporate term Vice President just seems so odd to me.

In Banking, Analyst > Associate > VP
In F500, Analyst > Mgr > Sr Mgr > Director > Sr Director > VP

Where did this VP term come from?

To make people sound more important than they are...to give them more credibility....to get more clients. And then later, to appease egos don't read too much into it
