Either one is proper passive construction, and they convey the same meaning.

The only difference is in how you chose the order of the pronouns "he" and "you". This is entirely at your preference, and does not alter the correctness of your passive voice construction.

(Of course, if this was a test question, the teacher would probably not want you to reverse the pronouns.)
