Sean R. Parnell (born November 19, 1962) is an American Republican politician who is the tenth and current Governor of Alaska. He succeeded Sarah Palin following her resignation, and was sworn in at the Governor's Picnic in Fairbanks on July 26, 2009. Parnell was elected to a full term as Governor in November 2010, becoming the first unelected Alaska Governor to be later elected in his own right.

Parnell was born in Hanford, California. He is the son of Kevin "Pat" Parnell, who owned a printing company in Anchorage. He attended Pacific Lutheran University, earning his B.B.A. in 1984, and University of Puget Sound School of Law (now Seattle University School of Law) earning his law degree in 1987. He is admitted to the bar in both Alaska and Washington D.C.

Parnell's father was the Democratic nominee for Alaska's at-large congressional seat running against incumbent Don Young in 1980. He served as a Democratic member of Alaska's state house from 1991 to 1993.
