'glad' to inform you [in a business letter?]

Hi everybody! well, I would like to know if the expression "to be glad" could be used in a written context, precisely in business letters.
In my last job interview, I was told that "I'm glad to inform you etc" must be used just in spoken English.. But I'm really doubtful.

What do you think about it? thanks very much in advance

    It can; but I think I'd normally use "pleased" instead - "I'm pleased to inform you ...."
