While AS9100 clause 5.3 does not dictate exactly who is to be appointed the management representative, it does require that it shall be a specific member of the organization’s management, so appointing a non-management person does not meet this requirement. As for Pro’s and Con’s of using a someone who is very low-level management to this position I can’t think of any Pro’s, and the biggest risk is the ability to have the “organizational freedom and unrestricted access to top management to resolve quality management issues” as required by the standard. This would occur if the low-level manager did not have the organizational clout to ensure that managers who are senior to the representative will resolve quality issues to the satisfaction of the quality representative.

You can read more on the quality management representative in the article: Is the management representative still required in AS9100 Rev D?, https://advisera.com/9100academy/blog/2017/05/22/is-the-management-representative-still-required-in-as9100-rev-d/
