Retired DOF assistant secretary Maria Teresa Habitan was also appointed as chancellor of the PTA.

Beltran was first named by President Duterte as a member of the PTA board of trustees representing the academe in January.

Prior to his election as PTA president, Beltran served as the DOF  undersecretary for the Policy Development and Management Services Group, after serving the same role for the Corporate Affairs Group and the Privatization Office.
