2022 Distinguished Alumni

B.S. Computer Science '00

Dan Yost is a native of Colorado, but a fan of Stillwater. He graduated summa cum laude from OSU in 2000 with a B.S. in computer science. He is now CEO of Tri-8, Inc., which is headquartered in Stillwater. Tri-8 helps businesses streamline and automate operations so that they can grow and scale while increasing profitability. Clients have ranged in size from small mom-and-pop businesses to one of the largest enterprises in the world. Tri-8’s passion lies in small- and medium-sized businesses seeking to grow via research and development and adept implementation of technology.  


Dan and his company have also built native products that include electronic payment processing, remote agricultural telemetry, stolen laptop tracking and encryption, RFID and sensor-driven management of healthcare and aging-in-place for the elderly. 


Dan and his wife, Stephanie, have four children, ages 11 to 18. He’s a private pilot, a rather rabid sports fan, and is known for using sports analogies ad nauseum. He bleeds orange and has been told that his beard — which has its own Twitter account — resembles this.
