Point1. She is the new MD; and so she is still alive. The sentence is set in present tense. We use- rose- because that was a past event. There is no need to parallelize it by using another past tense for the current situation.
Point 2. ‘That’ //ism is to be maintained. E Satisfies both the conditions.

E it is.
"That the new managing editor" is compared with "that she is". Parallelism and comparison is maintained.
