Correct idiom here should be Reputation for ( doing something or being something) and not of,
and with regards to the first one , you can use either
1 Tom was appointed as a senior manager or tom was appointed to the position of senior manager.

I couldn't find any problems in the 2018 Official Guide that used 'appoint', so we have to go on what's generally used in written English.

In this case, my intuition is that you have to be appointed to a position. 'Senior manager' is technically a position, but it's not completely clear - it can refer to either a position or the actual person in that position. So, saying 'Tom was appointed to senior manager' sounds wrong, while 'Tom was appointed to the senior manager position' sounds right.

I've also seen sentences like this:

"Tom was appointed senior manager."

That is, there's no 'the' and no 'as'. This also seems to be correct - here's a reference. https://ell.stackexchange.com/questions ... -appointed
