Submission + - Expanding your career in IT through.... sales?

HerculesMO writes: I have moved up the ranks starting from a lowly helpdesk guy, to systems administrator, to senior systems administrator, to systems engineering, to senior systems engineering and with some luck, I've wound up in management.

If I am to go down the road of being a CIO/CTO which is the ultimate goal, though I realize perhaps not entirely probably, would it make sense to get sales experience on my resume? I've been offered a few gigs from large tech firms to be part of a sales team; not exactly in a salesman role, but more of a technical walk-through kind of person.

So Slashdot, what do you think? Will it be a benefit to my career or not?
