No. The three adjectives are all quite different when used in performance critiques. And catapulted is quicker than 'quickly promoted', which sounds a bit odd outside the office anyway.

Thanks, Mister.

To make sure, how should I understand "powerful performance?"

By the way, why did you mention "outside the office?' I presume it doesn't mean litterally, right?
