No, your CTO shouldn't  be racking and stacking routers all the time.  The fundamental concept of an organizational hierarchy dictates that.  But a CTO who has lost touch with the challenges inherent in racking and stacking a router can't effectively support his team.  See the TV series 'undercover boss' for a (possibly trite and clichéd) example of this.
