    pleasure + prepositions

    Are the following sentences correct?


    I have the pleasure of welcoming you to our company.

    I have the pleasure to welcome you to our company.


    'Of' or 'on'? Maybe both are correct?



    Thank you for replies in advance.

    Both sentences work. "On" would not work.
