Can a tester become a CTO

Is there a valid career path from someone starting in testing to work there way up to a CTO? Or is this job specifically reserved for developers. Are CTOs basically dev managers on steroids?
I am a test team lead, and my background is in testing.

Just imagine,for one day[you dont need to tell/yell anyone]] you are the boss of the company in which you are working... starting from dress to walk, talk... see how much money you are putting in and how much productivity you get every division, but more focus on your IT delivery. Drive this for a week... lets see what happens...:)

Yes, the path is possible. I didn't understand Jessica but a good step would be to get some business degree, an associate at least and the background should help keep the rest on track.
