Tom has been working for a communications agency in Milton Keynes and was also previously editor of Police Professional.
Tom - who is married and lives in Northampton - said: "What's Brewing is a high-profile and well-respected publication, with one of the most knowledgeable and active readerships in the newspaper world.
"I'm very excited about the opportunity I've been given to take it forward and build on what has already been achieved to make it even more relevant, informative and entertaining for CAMRA members.
"It's also an exciting time to be involved with CAMRA.
"It continues to lead a vital battle to protect the UK's brewing and pub heritage and through the pages of What's Brewing and Beer, I'm keen to continue informing and motivating members to help in that fight."
