Indian English invariably has 'promoted as' where Anglophones use 'promoted to'.
Indians who favor British English consider 'promoted as' to be an Indianism or
an error. Yet, I find 'promoted as' in a publication outside India:
<<Born in in Ohio in 1940, Roger Ailes graduated from Ohio University and began
his career as a property assistant for NBC News’ Cleveland affiliate. While
there, Ailes became a producer and was promoted as an executive producer of
the affiliate’s “The Mike Douglas Show.”>>
