Would it be too pushy to ask?

I had a change of line manager at the end of last year, my manager at the time asked me to input to the onboarding notes of the new incoming manager. Original manager moved into new role in the company.
The document listed that I should be moved up to the next career level this year (2023). I joined the company last year and have performed very well to date, but appreciate it’s still early days.
My new manager has however not mentioned anything- now I don’t really know what to do. Is it too pushy to mention this and take the lead myself?
The new manager may of course disagree, which would be a bit awkward…

If you don't ask you don't get! So yes, ask. If they say no, then ask what you should be working on so that it can be considered in a year or two, and take that feedback constructively. Good luck!

Thanks @Fireyflies , I guess I’m worried about coming off as entitled, and being told I’m not that great…

I think you can frame it like "old manager said I was on track to move up a level this year. I wanted to discuss this with you and make sure I'm still on track, or if not, know what I need to work on".

If they say you're not that great, then ask how to be greater. Don't take it personally. (But every chance that if old manager was putting you forward, then you are well on track)
