Hi newyork2012,

The correct version in the first case is:

Tom was appointed to the position of senior manager.

In the second case, both versions are correct:

As a successful broker, Tom had a reputation for being aggressive.
As a successful broker, Tom had a reputation of being aggressive.


However, the first version sounds a bit better and more natural. When using "of", it is often better to use "the reputation" rather than "a reputation":

As a successful broker, Tom had the reputation of being aggressive.

Hope that helps! :)
